Our area is fortunate to have a number of news-outlets that work hard to support and report on prep student-athletes from around our area and as I understand it two of the larger outlets, WRAL-HighSchoolOT [HighSchooOT Coverage] and The News & Observer [N&O Prep Coverage] will both be accelerating into high gear to provide extensive coverage of the fall season and specifically the beginning of prep football. HighSchoolOT is advertising 24 hours of coverage beginning at 12:01 AM on Monday, July 30 to follow the start of practice at Leesville Road High School [24 Hours of HSFB kicks off...]. Leesville Road's plan to have an early morning start were reported in the News & Observer by Tim Stevens earlier this week [Leesville Road to start football practice early]. Look for both outlets to provide extensive coverage with the start of practice through the end of the playoffs. On the Durham scene, look to the Durham Herald-Sun to provide insight into local PAC-6 play. As always, you can jump over to our FB News Now [FB News Now] page listed at the top of the page and find links to all of these outlets. Finally, if you haven't checked it out yet, be sure to venture over to CarolinaPreps.com operated by Chris Hughes. This site has developed over the years and Chris continues to work to introduce ways to interact with the North and South Carolina communities and is looking toward having a weekly radio broadcast focusing on football coverage news from throughout the state [CarolinaPreps.com].
