It's Time For Football

July 29, 2012 - Michael McElwain

Well, it's almost the time for football.

How do I know? The answer is that this week and next, the entire sports staff from area newspapers will head to media days, interview players and coaches and put together a "football tab."

The football tab is the special supplement offered up by local papers designed to inform the fans about what high school football 2012 is all about.

For me, I will have a hand in two of the special publications. I helped out a little bit with our sister newspaper - The Review in East Liverpool - in putting together some parts of their football preview, and I will be spending more than a few hours doing whatever asked for the Herald-Star publication as well.

Let me just say that there are some big plans for the Herald-Star and Weirton Daily Times supplement, and it will be something fans will want to hold on to throughout the football season.

The photo included in this blog post is from The Review photo session, and I will post something from the Herald-Star photo shoot a little later.

The bulk of the work is being done by the Herald-Star sports staff, and that is one dedicated bunch. It's not because of money, recognition or any type of glory. It's because the sports editor, reporters, correspondents and photographers all know something important. It's all for the student athletes and for the love of the game.

Get ready, Ohio Valley... and hold on tight. It's going to be a fun football season.
