Just as I do each season, I plan to follow the careers of former high school athletes who are now playing in college or professionally.
Here is a list of area athletes and where they are playing. If there are corrections or if I’m missing someone, please let me know.
Also, I’ve started a new sports blog at I plan to give my thoughts on everything from high school to college to professional sports, along with whatever else may be on my mind.
I’d love to hear from you.
