Like an overtime thriller, game seven of the finals and your favorite player’s career, all good things must eventually come to an end. And today, my time at The Herald News has hit triple zeroes.
I make my living putting words to paper while attempting to inform and entertain the Rhea County community on the happenings ranging from city council and school board meetings to feature stories and athletics across the county.
Another weekend of college football has come and gone and today I’ll take a brief look back on some of the events that unfolded Saturday including one West coast track meet that ended at nearly 2:30 a.m. EST Sunday morning.
I’d be hard pressed to come up with single week of the calendar year that I enjoy more than Thanksgiving week. As if valuable time with family and old friends as well as the always-delicious Thursday meal wasn’t enough, I get to snack on leftovers the rest of the weekend before heading to th…
As an avid college football fan that bleeds a different shade of orange, I feel that I can give an unbiased perspective on the dumpster fire that has been the UT football program this season.
Last season I thought Clemson was a team of destiny. During the off-season heading into the 2015, I expected we would compete for an ACC title. Probably finish in the top 10 or 15.
It was dreary day in Charlotte on Dec. 31, 2010. I vividly remember walking out of Bank of America Stadium that afternoon as South Florida fans rejoiced a 31-26 Meineke Car Care Bowl victory over Clemson.
My first year at The Herald-News has quickly come and gone. It’s hard to believe it has already been a full 365 days since I first arrived in Dayton. It has been quite the journey and today I’d like to take a moment to look back on my first year as the guy who wears “the wrong shade of orang…
Captivating. Inspiring. Heart-rendering. Invigorating. All of these are great adjectives to describe the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Year after year the post-season extravaganza proves to be the best single best event in all of sports.
35 years ago, a team from a small town called Clemson, South Carolina defeated Nebraska 22-15 in the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida to claim the 1981 National Championship.
With Christmas just days away, it’s almost time for St. Nick to make his annual trek across the globe to deliver Christmas cheer to all the good little boys and girls around the word. In conjunction with our annual Christmas Greetings edition we have included Santa letters from local 2nd gra…
Thanksgiving is always an extra special week in my household. The entire family usually gathers at our house and we are the epitome of a “family divided”. The division spreads through my extended family so it always makes rivalry week a lot of fun.
When I arrived in February at The Herald-News, I knew I had inherited a pretty solid high school football team to cover as a sports reporter. I heard all about the historic playoff run last season that ended in the semifinals to Knox West in heartbreaking fashion.
“They always remember November” --A familiar phrase in college football that carries even more weight in the modern college football playoff era. The first round of rankings for the second year in the new system were released Tuesday night and “Dancing” Dabo Swinney’s Clemson Tigers came out…

Another week of college football, another school (two actually) has parted ways with its head coach mid-season and another wild special teams finish highlighted week eight of the college football season.
The Rhea County High School Eagles might not have the perfect record they had this time last season, but Coach Mark Pemberton’s “Birds of Prey” are picking up some serious momentum at the best time possible.
It was a crazy week of news in the sports world. From the dismissal of Steve Sarkisian at USC and his admission into rehab for an apparent alcohol problem to Florida’s Will Grier’s one-year suspension for the use of PED’s to the tragic news of former NBA star Lamar Odom being found unconscio…
Choosing to be a college football head coach is quite a gutsy decision. While some fail to realize it, the position is a business and the bottom line is you have to produce positive results—or else.
Another memorable weekend of college football is in the books after a wild and wet Saturday which saw #1 Ohio State edge Indiana 34-27 and #2 Michigan State do just enough to hold off Purdue, 24-21. Other top ranked foes weren’t as lucky though as #3 Ole Miss, #6 Notre Dame, #7 UCLA and …
To say the Rhea Middle School football team has had a successful season might be one of the biggest understatement of the year—at least when it comes to football in Rhea County thus far this season.
With the NBA finals and Draft, College World Series and Women’s World Cup all in the rearview mirror, we have approached what I always refer to as the “dead period” of the sports year.
Growing up in upstate South Carolina as a child, I learned from an early age I had to make a decision. Clemson or South Carolina. No in between or fencing riding allowed, you’re either one or the other.
