Calling all high school sports fans!
Kudos to Record sports editor Kevin Moran and his staff for putting together a terrific 48-page high school football preview section, which is available today in print and online.
The section is a must-read for fans of the Friday night lights.
Among the section highlights are:
-- The end of an era: One final season for Shenendehowa icon Brent Steuerwald; (ABOVE)
-- The La Salle Institute Cadets return with 21 of 22 starters from last year as they kick off their 2011 season;
-- The Lansingburgh High School Knights expect to make another super run this season; and
-- It make take Troy High School's Flying Horses a few weeks to come together, but they have the talent to contend.
My thanks also to our sports reporters Laura Amato, Andrew Santillo, Ed Weaver, correspondent Mike Cioffi and Assistant Sports Editor Tim Martin for their work on the section.
Welcome aboard to Laura, our new high school sports reporter, who will be spending a lot of Friday nights under the lights. Say hello when you see her out at a game.
Praise also goes to Chief Photographer Mike McMahon and photographers Jim Carras and Jeff Couch for their terrific photos.
Thanks also to the local advertisers who supported this section!
