Throughout the year, fall sports previews always seem to be one of the more exciting times in the media business.
And as far as sports are concerned in the Southern Ohio area, there’s plenty to be excited about in 2017. That excitement is parlayed in the 2017 Daily Times Fall Sports Preview, which will hit area businesses and newsstands this Thursday as school, and the fall sports season, gets rolling.
Over the preview, one will find 16 football stories in said preview, which include each of the five SOC II schools, all seven SOC I schools, and both of the OVC schools in the coverage area in Ironton and Portsmouth, respectively. Greenup County and Piketon, respectively, are also included. Ben Spicer and Kevin Colley wrote seven stories apiece for the Daily Times, while Jim Walker of the Ironton Tribune contributed a pair of stories to the project. Treyci Comer was a big contributor to the project and worked on each of the football rosters that are available in the preview.
In addition to each of the football programs, everyone will find fall sports schedules that were provided to the Daily Times. Each fall sport schedule that was provided is linked to the individual team that provided them. Comer worked diligently on those to make sure that they were also included.
We want to thank everyone’s time and patience with this project, including the athletic coaches and coaches who worked with us to provide the information necessary to put together this press release in a timely manner. This project was a team effort in every sense of the word.
