Where does the time go? Seems like only a few weeks ago that I was finishing up our coverage of the state HS basketball tournament in Glens Falls, and preparing for Spring sports, graduation season and the like. Now here it is mid-August, and I’ve already begun gathering press packets, have been to West Point for Army Football media day and their first pre-season (walk through) practice last week. With temperatures here in the Northeast still pushing into the high 80′s to low 90′s, there’s nothing I’d want to be doing more than schlepping around two and sometimes three camera bodies in this heat to Army’s indoor practice facility down at West Point. It’s still fun to get the assignment to cover the premiere sports team in our area, especially in their first class athletic facilities. Looking forward to working the upcoming football season, both at the NCAA Div. 1 level (Army) as well as our local HS powerhouses. Stay tuned…  ~cg
