Welcome to the start of a new high school football season in East Central Alabama and to the inaugural blog for yours truly. My goal for this space is to provide a little more commentary on high school sports in Talladega and St. Clair counties, more than we are able to print in The Daily Home.
While I’ll have plenty to say about high school football, I certainly don’t want to leave out the other sports happening during the fall, such as volleyball. Since Talladega is home to Talladega College, you’ll find my thoughts on all the sports offered there as well.
Anyone who read my columns in the Daily Home when I first started at the company four years ago knows I have a passion for NASCAR racing. That passion has waned some in the past few years, but I’ll try to throw in a little commentary on that sport from time to time.
If you’re interested in high school sports in Talladega and St. Clair, check back often for my thoughts on the teams we cover (Alabama School for the Deaf, Fayetteville, Ragland, Talladega County Central, Victory Christian, Winterboro, B.B. Comer, Central-Coosa, Childersburg, Lincoln, Munford, Sylacauga, Talladega and Pell City).
My colleague on the DH sports desk, LaVonte Young, has also started a blog and will be posting his thoughts on many of the same things. We don’t always agree on things (like which teams in our area will make the playoffs) so be sure to check out his postings as well.
If all goes according to plan (and really, it rarely does) I’ll post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week.
Check back later today for my best guess of which of the local teams will make the high school football playoffs this season.
