Over the past few months I’ve been doing some freelance journalism work for VYPE Magazine. VYPE is a high school sports magazine that focuses on covering student-athletes in the Houston area.
While I’ve covered an assortment of sports in my career, I haven’t covered cross country or track since I wrote two features back in 2008. The first highlighted Olympic hopeful LeJerald Betters and the other was a feature for the Big 12 Conference on Erin Bedell.
A few weeks back I had the opportunity to speak with two local student-athletes on behalf of VYPE Magazine who are making their mark on the Houston cross country circuit. Both Willis’ Cali Roper and The Woodlands’ Brigham Hedges were named Gullo Player of the Month.
