Mid-August, and it’s still hot. Which means more football practice still to cover for the upcoming seasons, daily and preview sports stories our guys are writing on; both at Army and our local high schools. Here’s a take from 3 practice sessions this past week. (Army opens on the road two weeks from today at Eastern Michigan and the local HS season begins on Friday evening, Sept. 3rd.)

*It has taken awhile for things to sort of set in this early season, but by continually paying attention to all the back stories with some of these teams and key players, it’s (finally) shaping up to be an interesting Fall for upcoming sports coverage. Time to start re-checking the backup camera bodies, long & short lenses, remote radio transmitters & receivers, monopd(s) and camera remote mounting hardware, knee pads, rain gear, luggage cart, and all the other extra “do-dads” and “whatchamacallits” I work with for football game coverage… ~cg.
