Previously, I did a piece for Poynter.org on Dave Kindred, one of the top sportswriters of his generation, getting great joy out of covering the Morton girls high school basketball team.
Well, it turns out the Potters won the Illinois state title, and the team insisted Kindred be awarded with a medal.
Now that’s a first. The Dream Team never called him up to receive a gold medal.
WEEK has a feature on Dave. At the end, you’ll see him receive his medal.
