Trish Hoffman and I are very happy to announce that Bryant Roche is the first recipient of a freelance assignment from High School Football America’s GoFundMe campaign that is designed to help unemployed high school sports reporters due to the coronavirus pandemic or the overall downsizing of media outlets.

Roche, who was working for the Florida Union-Times in Jacksonville, Florida at the time of the shutdown of high school sports in the Sunshine State, is a former high school football player at Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville.

Below is the call Trish and I made to a very happy Bryant…

Bryant is currently working on his story that will be posted shortly on High School Football America.

Our first assignment is a direct result of our first two donations from acclaimed New York sportswriter Mike Vacarro of the New York Post and former Texas high school football coach and Hall of Fame Athletic Director Mark Ball. Both donated $100. But, don’t let that number scare you…we’re looking for donations big and small. If you can’t donated, you can help by spreading the word about the campaign to your friends and family.

The 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.
