Before the season is over and before I forget to do so I would just like to thank Mr. Thomas for his coverage of the Zips this season. 100% better than what had been the past norm IMO and a job very well done. Great article on Tree !! It appears that these two have developed a great relationship.

I have to agree. Very good coverage for the most part from GT. I think the Zips deserved a beat writer to travel with the team as Elton Alexander does but thats a budgetary call and the BJ would rather cover Can't state (per Ron Ledgard). Lets hope GT stays on the Akron beat for a while.

Yes, thank you, George! Very good work.

For years I've called the BJ the Cleveland Beacon Journal, but this year you've really done Akron right.

So thankful!

You could easily have call it "Columbus" too.

I think it's improving also. Thanks George.

The BJ decided several years ago to gear their coverage of prep and college sports to the areas the prurchase the BJ, with the exception of tOSU coverage. For Can't & Akron, for the most part they try to be equal with the coverage of FB & BB. George covers U of A and Storm covering Can't. The budget for traveling precludes George from going on many road trips.

I do feel that he has done a good job and I hope that the BJ will continue to have him cvoer U of A.

George isn't going anywhere, he covers football too. Still a good idea for a thread. Thanks George. :wave:

It was important for me to do justice to a story on Tree for one reason: we attended the same high school. I graduated nine years prior to his birth, but once a Panther...

Are you saying the competition has zero interest in hiring him? That's not good.

Competition isn't really hiring anyone. ;)

Secondly, giving up close to 14 years of seniority in the current environment would be - to paraphrase the knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - unwise. Just sayin'.

Is that really the the only reason, George?

@George Thomas, may you cover Zips sports until your hair is whiter than Elton Alexander's! :bow:

But it looks so dark in the PD every morning?

@Captain Kangaroo, thanks for posting the youthful Elton photo. At the JAR a few weeks ago his hair appeared even whiter than in this more recent image:
