Concord’s Grace Brenneman, here with CHS principal Dr. Lisa Kendall and athletic director Dave Preheim, won the IHSAA Mental Attitude Award for girls swimming last winter.

I was born outside Chicago, raised in the farmlands of Marshall County and covered my first high school football game at Triton High School when I was 18 and a freshman in college.

Since then I’ve covered the Chicago Bears, 11 Indianapolis 500s, some college football and basketball games, watched Michael Jordan soar in the NBA playoffs, had Thanksgiving dinner in the old Silverdome with the NFL commissioner and met Muhammad Ali.
