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.

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…

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.

There are times when you should not try too hard to find flaws. There are definitely times where focusing on the positives can be a good thing but sometimes you have to find where the issues are so things can start improving.

As much as I love college football Saturdays, there are times during the offseason where I feel like the hype is just a little too much. I do not need to read an article or watch a show every day on schedule releases, recruits, Heisman potential, new coaches, etc.

As we say goodbye to the summer of 2019, allow me to reminisce with you and indeed commemorate more than likely a summer exactly 50 years ago that was undoubtedly the most momentous summer in American history — the summer of 1969.
