Football sidelines, press boxes ‘adventures’

By Willis Webb


One of my columns on footballpress box conversations drew a lot of comments from  editor-publishers before it ever hit their papers’ pages. Community newspapers are often not large enough to have a “sports” editor or a staff photographer, so the job(s) become(s) a one-man-show. Everyone has a story or two to tell about some adventures or misadventures, as it were. In hearing some of the tales by my contemporaries, it prompted me to resurrect some past experiences in that vein. Staffing on small newspapers often precludes having a true “professional” photographer. Most weekly newspapers don’t have anyone whose job is strictly photography, so whoever is the designated editornewshound- paparazzi gets to shoot sports, particularly football.
