    I am not sure about the HL. But being from NKY, look at what the KY Enquire has been doing, and do the exact opposite! The number one reason who stopped that paper is the tremendous lack of local HS sports.

    Good Luck at the HL, and welcome!

    I bet that got him searching through the google machine. I am sure Josh would rather think of himself as Tommy Lasorda, versus Gene Bartow.

    If it weren't for fans of all types -- coaches, parents, students, toddlers, -- there wouldn't be coverage of sports period. Who's keeping up with these things if not the fans?

    Ha! I was familiar with Bartow, actually. Here's hoping I can at least be a Joe B.

    I can't speak for what the Enquirer does in print or on its website, but I'm going to make every effort to have high schools represented well at the Herald-Leader.

    Welcome aboard. Will you be covering the All-A basketball tourney this January? Had the pleasure of having Mike Fields seated to my right for 4 days the last two years.

    To be quite honest with you, the only thing that I have went to the HL for over the last few years was the Fields' Notes section every Friday. I always looked forward to reading those and then if a headline caught my eye while trying to find those, then I would click and read on, but the Fields' Note were the main thing for me. I would love to see something similar because you could do quick, bullet point style writing and cover a great deal of the coverage area in one article. Of course you won't be able to cover every team, but to see the random mentions from schools that get little to no coverage was neat.

    There's a great deal of talent out there. It might be the state's biggest hotbed right now. Definitely can't forget it !

    I can't confirm now but it's a huge event that I expect to be in attendance for. We'll have to see come winter to say for certain, though.

    Fields' notebook was a treasure cove of information and something I look forward to continuing in my own manner. The depth of his expertise in gathering that knowledge is something that'll be impossible to emulate (you don't just walk in on the job and replicate 40 years of experienced reporting), but I'm confident I'll be able to do things that make my work a prime destination for all HS sports fans. Stay tuned!
