It is here!
The first Portage Sports High School Boys and Girls Basketball Preview Edition is now available!
I am very excited to present the publication to all of the great communities in Portage County.
It is my intention that the preview is only the first of many to come in the future years.
Growing up in the county, I always anticipated the release of the extensive preview on area teams. In the last few years, a preview of similar content became extinct and I wanted to bring it back and help return some of that same excitement.
Inside the preview are an in-depth look at all of the boys and girls basketbal teams throughout Portage County, including team photos, rosters and schedules for Aurora, Crestwood, Field, Garfield, Kent Roosevelt, Mogadore, Ravenna, Rootstown, Southeast, Streetsboro, Waterloo and Windham.
In total, the preview consists of 40 full-color, card stock pages filled with content.
While the preview serves as a chance to get to know the teams, it is also a memory for the entire 2022-23 season.
Anyone interested in ordering the preview can email me at email@example.com.
A special thank you to all of the local businesses that supported the preview edition.
