Football Tab

I’m done with my vacation and it’s time to go back to work today. Essentially, we’re in the stretch run. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of fall.

Prep football camps open next week and it will be time to work on The Courier’s annual football tab. You usually have about a week to gather all the information, visit the camp and get your story and other information needed for the tab written. The only problem is you have between 7-9 of these to do during that one week.

It’s a busy, busy time. You also have to take care of our normal job every night at the newspaper getting the section ready to publish the next day.

Our biggest project of the year is the Courier’s high school football tab.

What’s the best part of the football tab? What would you like to see in it that you don’t see? Do you read it cover to cover? Do you keep it and look at it as reference throughout the season?

    As an ex-BVC player, I look forward to seeing the tab every year. It is very imformative. I definitely keep it and read through it all year long.

    I think you guys should start something like a pre-season ranking, or a prediction of sorts for the end of the year. It would add some spice to everything. The football tab really does not need a whole lot more.

    The main thing I want to see again is the matchup information that used to be in Friday's paper. Adding the weekly stats would be awesome also, kind of like baseball/softball and track do.

    Keep up the good work!

    Do you know a guy named Rick Phillips? I think he was from Findley.
