All of the above changes apply to our sports coverage, too. We’re devoted to making sure that Eagle is the first place you turn to for high-school news and notes.
Sure, you’ll have the usual game stories, but I’m also returning to a blog I used to do, but abandoned, a while back. The “Blackwell Blog” will cover as many of the high-school news as we can, not just in our coverage area but all over Central New York and the state, too. Things happen every day, and I will endeavor to keep the blog fresh for all our readers.
Still, neither myself, nor the writers and photographers that help out in our coverage, can do it alone. These are, after all, “community” publications, and that means your input, and help, is quite welcome as we serve you.
From a sports standpoint, that might mean writing stories on the teams, or features about the young men and women who take the field. Or it could mean simply taking pictures, giving a face to all those names you read about on a weekly basis. Those kids deserve that attention for the hard work that they do. As always, I want to hear from you, for your feedback helps us strengthen our focus on the things that count.
Through the years I’ve spent at Eagle, the greatest excitement comes from seeing how high-school sports teams can galvanize a community. The pride they take in seeing their boys and girls march toward championships is something that’s hard to describe, but still we hope that our new-look pages, and our new-look web sites, reflect those tales as they unfold.
