National signing day has come and gone and once again there is no shortage of talent. Navarre, Pace, Milton, Crestview. All have athletes who are headed to the next level.
That chance to play a college sport is a dream for every athlete. Heck, I used to have that dream. I just didn’t have the talent to match it.
Well Crestview, two weeks into trying to provide coverage of your teams, I’m quickly getting the feeling that you care about your sports a lot.
Several coaches have expressed how much they enjoy the fact that we now run the Crestview News Bulletin and they are excited about the potential it has.
We sometimes forget that it’s 2022, not 1992, and that the world of college athletics, especially the football landscape, has changed in ways we could have never imagined a few decades ago.
If only Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard understood that.
I’ve seen my share of Navarre athletic events that involve a game or a match or a meet against Crestview, but rarely is anyone there to cover the Bulldogs in action.
In some ways it is a sign of the times in journalism. The dedication to covering events and covering them well just isn’t the same in the 21st century.
