Latest at The Classical

On the eve of Game 7 of the NBA Finals, I wrote, at The Classical, an appreciation of the incredible Game 6 and the mystery of the season's last game. It lived up to whatever I wanted it to be, that's for certain.

It is always a blast to write for that site.

Arena football in Auburn

This week I did a longish feature on the Chattahoochee Valley Vipers, an arena football team with wishes to move to Auburn. They've got a ways to go, but the right mindset to potentially pull it off.

Here's the story.

Until next time.

The month of May at the Auburn Villager


Here's some of what I did in May at the Villager:

- I wrote about Auburn AD Jay Jacobs and his optimism about the future of the school's athletic programs.

- I did a feature on Auburn's 1913 football team, which went undefeated and are thought by some to be the national champions, and maybe the school's best team ever. (Update: This story won first place in the 2014 Alabama Press Association awards for Best Sports Feature Story. So that was cool.)

- Auburn High's baseball team made a run to the state semifinals; here's a look at how and why they got there.
