Reading the sports section

Short of keeping up with Grimsley H.S.’s football coverage, I’m not much a customer for the N&R’s sports pages.  But reporter Robert Bell and girl-magnet/photographer (inside joke) Jerry Wolford’s series on Page High School’s football season has me captivated.

I just don’t normally attribute Bell’s excellent and engaging narrative style to local sports writing, but I guess I’ll have to pay more attention in the future.  In addition, as the series unfolds Wolford’s photos are capturing the agony and the ecstasy both of Page’s fall from grace as a perenial football powerhouse, and glimmers of their redemption under coach Bob Via.

Here’s the whole series.  If you or some boy in your life ever played, wanted to play, or might play high school football in the future, follow along.  Tomorrow they cover the Grimsley/Page rivalry.
