Jan. 2, 2013 —
As with any departure, there comes painful goodbyes, and in this occasion, there also comes thanks.
I would like to thank the coaches, student athletes, administrators, coworkers and all those whose eyes have ran across the words in this sports section. You helped make my life as a local ‘sports guy’ gratifying, and I will certainly never forget it.
This was not just a sports section to me, it was my sports section, and now I pass the torch on to another, one who I am sure will bring the same amount of enthusiasm and care to its pages.
No matter where my journeys may take me, or what changes may come my way, I will always be a good old boy from Carter County.
Here’s to new beginnings.
