Lansing Football Beats Waverly, Is #1

 

football1022 8 120This past Friday night, standing at the top of the Eastern hill, looking down upon the green, grass, grid iron of Sobus Field, the blaze orange sticks, chains and down marker lay on the visitor's side near the forty yard line. A crew from Waverly was setting up a boom camera at the North end, behind the uprights. The volunteer crew was starting to set up the concession stand, readying for a battle of their own. Jeff Neal and his crew from News Radio WEBO were performing a sound check on their broadcasting equipment. Chicken dinners were being sold down the hill. All of these activities and more were taking place to get the field prepped for the battle.

The two teams took the field to run through their pregame warmups, passing lines, linemen hits, and kicking drills. The coaches watching everything, setting up the chess match in their head. A short time later, the Bobcats filed down the hill to meet and finalize the game plan that they have been working on all week. The Waverly Wolverines huddled near the Northwest corner of the field to discuss their game. Fans, family members, photographers, scouts and community members started to fill the bleachers and the hillside. It was almost time.

Are You a Sports Reporter?

Are You a Sports Reporter?

 

football1Why We Need You: By the numbers we know our readers love to read about Lansing sports.  During the Varsity season the Sports page is as popular as our News and Around Town pages.  But with one staff reporter for all topics in our small publication the only way we can cover sports at all is if volunteer writers send in reports.

We would love to expand our sports coverage to reports on club sports, more Rec Department sports news, and other schools that Lansing students attend, such as Ithaca High School or New Roots High School. 

Coaches: We get many wonderful articles from coaches who have been really great about taking the time to write up theoir team's accomplishments.  If you are a coach, we love getting sports news from you!

Contributors don't have to be coaches. In fact the Star welcomes contributors of all ages from students to seniors.  The great benefit of having a parent, a student, or any interested person writing about a sport is that you speak the language of the sport and therefore you can connect to readers much better than our one harried reporter ever could do.

Writing a sports article doesn't have to be hard.  While we do work with a style guide,
the basics are simple.  Our writing guidelines can always be easily found at http://news.lansingstar.com/

The many Varsity coaches that have contributed to the Star have been outstanding in this regard. 

Individual contributors have contributed over the years and have provided amazing in-depth coverage of Lansing athletes.  The Lansing Star is also grateful to Geoff Wright, who has generously advertised on our Sports page since the Star began publishing, just to support sports in Lansing.

Coverage in the Star gives our hard working athletes the recognition they deserve, and your contributions make them and you stars in the community.  For students the opportunity to be published in a local professional newspaper is valuable when you are compiling your resume to get into college, or looking for a job.  For parents its a way to showcase your kids and their teammates.  For any Lansing sports fan it's a great expression of your love for sports.
