Rick Teverbaugh: Football coverage plans change

How in the world did this happen? It was summer. I blinked and football starts Friday.

It does make sense in a way. We’ve had a mild summer and just as temperatures vault into the upper 80s, it is time for players to don the pads and play football.

The way Friday night’s games are presented to THB subscribers is changing beginning this Saturday.

Each week, George Bremer will be covering our Game of the Week and one of our photographers will be there to provide photos. We will move around from school to school and rivalry to rivalry to get the most promising matchup covered each week.

Then we will have three or four other writers out at games each Friday.

All of the writers will be providing scores and some details from their games at our THB Sports Twitter account so the prep football fans should definitely follow us there.

If fans are attending games and not seeing Twitter updates, it likely means there is no writer at that game. In that case, we would encourage people to Tweet quarter scores and a final score to us so we can retweet it and use it in the scoreboard of the print edition.

The writers we send out plus, hopefully, the coaches of the teams we aren’t covering are going to call in a few details on the games and we will have a roundup, for the print edition, of all games other than the Game of the Week.

The reason we will only have one full story in print plus a roundup is because of more pressure from earlier deadlines than in years past. In order to meet those deadlines so that all subscribers can have their papers delivered on time each morning, we had to adopt this new way to present game stories for print.
