Sports play a vital role at every high school. They boost morale with the athletes who participate. They generate pride on campus and within the community.
But athletics are suffering at that level. Participation numbers are down. Some junior varsity teams no longer exist. Even a few varsity programs are struggling to fill out rosters.
Part of that is due to the coverage of high school sports, or lack thereof. Many newspapers no longer have a high school beat reporter. As a result, exposure has dwindled.
That is why having outlets such as Prime Time Preps is so important. Our mandate is to highlight athletes and teams as much as possible through online polls, rankings, roundups and much more.
You can make a difference, too, by choosing a donation amount that will help us acknowledge the players and the high school teams in our communities today, tomorrow , and the next day ahead.
