Football tab coming Sept. 3

Not sure how many pages we’ll have this year but you guys pretty much get the gist of what to expect in the football tab. Here’s the breakdown:

*Cover story on Top 5 players this side of the 626

*Top 10 teams story

*My intro column

*League-by-league previews

*Capsules on every area team

*Team schedules

*Feature on new coaches in the area

*And story on how league realignments will shake up the CIF playoffs

All my copy has to be turned in by Tuesday, Aug. 26 so I’m cranking it out quick to make deadline. Don’t worry, I got this.

My top 5 players will meet Friday for their photo shoot, which will be the centerpiece photo for the football tab.

Also, In case you’re wondering how league rankings stack up, ranked the top leagues in California.

Here’s how it looks between our three coverage areas, the Star-News, Tribune and Whittier Daily News.
