After the AHSAA announced its suspension of the spring sports season effective Wednesday due to the coronavirus outbreak, teams were faced with the reality of their time together suddenly being limited. Several schools began canceling events immediately while others attempted to reschedule s…

It is not really a secret most major holidays come with a slate of games dedicated to one sport or another. Thanksgiving belongs to the NFL, New Year’s Day belongs to college football, Independence Day belongs to MLB and Boxing Day belongs to soccer.

Reeltown football coach Matt Johnson has never hidden the fact he’s a Christian man. He uses the principles instilled from his religion to guide his student-athletes to not just become better football players but, more importantly, to become better men.

As preparation continued for another week of the NFL season last week, I saw a quote from Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield that rubbed me the wrong way. I’m not sure what exactly he meant by it but it didn’t the attention it should have gotten and it became a joke on ESPN talk shows.

It’s Nov. 2 and that means — well, in my world anyway — it’s practically Thanksgiving and Christmas has basically arrived. I’m already ready for my Christmas tree and all the pine-scented candles. Let’s break out the Buffalo plaid and go ahead and stock up on wrapping paper. It’s time for th…

Halloween can be tough for children who have special needs. Some love it; others don’t; many love it but encounter issues throughout the holiday.

The last two seasons for the Wetumpka football have been two of the most successful seasons in the program’s history. But despite being one of the best teams in Class 6A across the state, there were some clear gaps between Wetumpka and the other top-tier programs.

This week I received a letter to the editor from The Stuttering Foundation of America that said, “Stuttering is the only disability people still laugh at but we’re working to change that.” It got me thinking.

To the surprise of college football fans around the world Saturday, the game in Athens, Georgia between UGA and South Carolina was actually worth watching. Well, let me rephrase: it was worth seeing to the result.

I came to several realizations last Tuesday afternoon while driving from back to The Wetumpka Herald office from Alex City, hometown of The Herald’s corporate offices. I have to admit, it is a great experience for those who enjoy looking at the back of a John Deere tractor moving hay down th…

If you have ever had a small argument with me over sports or anything else, there’s a good chance you know I like to play devil’s advocate — probably too much. It’s to the point where it annoys everyone else.

I hear plenty of reasons on why people do not like watching baseball. It’s too slow. The baseballs are juiced. The season is too long. Pitchers shouldn’t be hitting. (That last one is courtesy of me and all of my American League fans.)

I’ve always loved to work. One of my first columns at The Herald was about being a workaholic and how I became one. I spend 12 hours here at good ole TPI most days but it’s because I love what I do and I’m constantly working to improve. I like it that way; it’s just natural to me.

You ever shake somebody’s hand and you’re pretty sure they’re missing a finger but don’t want to look down to make it obvious you know they’re a digit short? Yeah, that happened to me the other day, but I looked down. I didn’t mean to but did nevertheless, and he caught me. So he knew I knew…

On Sept. 1, Category 5 Hurricane Dorian slammed into the Bahamas. Ten days later the death toll is near 100, and literally thousands of people are still missing. Thankfully, and through an outpouring of compassion from diverse folks and places, relief efforts are underway and some help is be…

Over the last two weeks, Friday nights filled with fantastic football games were overshadowed by some strong disagreement of calls. A week after Dadeville thought it made a game-winning field goal at the last second, Wetumpka did not get the benefit of a flag thrown when a deep ball fell inc…

The time of year my boyfriend has been talking about since it ended is finally here.  Lord, bless him. I’ve been hearing an exact countdown for months; we’re talking hours, minutes, seconds.
