Auburn Villager posts for week of Jan. 31

Hi! Fun week at the Villager, it was.

- I chatted over the phone with San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers about the Super Bowl and state of Auburn football. It was pretty neat.


- With National Signing Day next week, I also spoke to Auburn High head football coach Tim Carter about the prospects on his team, including Reuben Foster.


Enjoy Super Bowling.

Auburn Villager posts for the week of Jan. 24


Here's what I was working on last week at the Villager:

- Auburn basketball got crushed by Kentucky, and needed a better performance against Ole Miss. They got it, but still lost.


- Lee-Scott Academy prep basketball, two powerhouses primed for the postseason.


- And Auburn High School girls basketball, also on the eve of the playoffs.


Thanks for reading.

Auburn Villager stories: Late December to Jan. 17

I've been spotty filling this space, but here's me playing catch-up. Aside from the profile piece I did on Lee-Scott coach Chad Prewett, I've been writing about basketball in most of its forms here in Auburn.

Here they are.

- Auburn High School's varsity boys got off to a tough start, only to rebound in a weekend (From Dec.20).


- Before the Auburn Tigers started SEC play, I had my doubts as to whether or not they could overcome themselves (From Jan. 3).


- Next, I looked at the AU women's basketball team, starting strong under a new head coach (From Jan. 10).


- This week, I revisited Lee-Scott basketball, with one team's streak ending and the other finally getting practice time.


- Lastly, I previewed Auburn's contest against Kentucky this Saturday, and how this year's team is bringing back memories of ten years ago.

Auburn Villager, Christmas Week: Chad Prewett profile

For the Christmas week edition of the Villager, I worked for a few months on a profile of Chad Prewett, a local high school basketball coach of two teams, at the same time.

Clocking in at over 4,000 words, it was a fun project, and I was happy with the results. If you're interested, there it is.


Happy New Year, all.
