One of our favorite traditions is running the All-Area football team on Christmas Day, but due to circumstances beyond the sports department’s control, the back page where we feature the 25 all-area players will not be a color page on Christmas Day, it will be black-and-white. We had the option of running it regardless black-and-white, but the consensus was to wait until we had a guaranteed color page, because the players and teams deserve it. So, the football section will be delayed until Saturday or early next week, I will keep you informed. We have run the all-area teams in color every year since 1991, so it was important to at least keep that tradition. Sorry for the delay, I know how much you enjoyed reading it on Christmas Day. The front page is always a color page, so on Christmas we will run the boys water polo team instead, since all pictures in water polo will be kept to the front page.
