No time to relax in the summer, over the next two months Keith and I will be working on PrepXtra, a magazine of 40-50 pages that will serve as our prep football preview instead of the traditional six-page newspaper special section that we produce every fall. This will be similar to our Rose Magazine and with the additional space we will be able to write a preview of every football team in the area, not just a league overview with a capsule. It’s the most ambitious project we’ve tried yet, which will include columns, features, and of course a cover story and picture that will set up the 2010 season. I’m taking suggestions on the cover shot and story, and any other items you would like to see in the magazine.
Last year’s cover: The top six area athletes making headlines are featured. We’ve gone the traditional route, but we’re taking suggestions for this year’s cover shot. Any thoughts?
