Trish Hoffman and I are happy to announce that Kevin Smith, who is on hiatus as the Sports Editor at the Pall-Times newspaper in Oswego, New York, will be be writing a story for High School Football America thanks to donations given to our GoFundMe campaign designed to help laid-off high school sports reporters. To qualify for the assignments, a high school sports reporter needs to be laid-off due to the coronavirus pandemic or have lost their job due to the overall downsizing in the industry.

Trish and I called Kevin last night. You can watch it below.

Last week, we handed-out our first assignment to Bryant Roche in Jacksonville, Florida.

Our goal is to raise $30,000, which will result in 200 high school football stories promoting high school football student-athletes, coaches, programs and communities around the nation. High school sports reporters will be paid $150 per assignment.

EVERY penny will go to the reporters. High School Football America will be picking-up all of the fees associated with the campaign.
