High School Sports Coverage

We will be working diligently to bring you accurate high school sports coverage as much is possible here at Rochester Media. However, in the meantime we have made a great connection with veteran journalist Dan Stickradt from North Oakland Sports. We will be linking with his efforts at www.northoaklandsports.com for even better coverage of what is happening in our community.

A little history on Dan directly from his website; 

Going to high school games with my father in the late 1970s, “I personally spent more time crawling underneath old rickety bleachers and playing with other youngsters than watching the games. But as I grew older, that began to change. By the time I was in middle school, going to basketball, football , soccer games, and even track meets became almost a passion, not just time well-spent with my father. It was something that I eagerly looked forward to do several days a week. Sometimes watching games became even more exciting than playing in them…
I finally got my start back in early 1993 at the old Rochester Clarion Weekly, covering six high schools and occasionally two colleges. A brief internship with the Clarion and some free-lance work with the Detroit News during the 1990s eventually turned into a 12-year stint as one of the regional sports editors for the Observer & Eccentric Newspapers.   Many of these years were also spent moonlighting as a student at Oakland University. There was not a greater place to be than covering sports in Oakland County. Is there a better epicenter of great local sports entertainment than right here in the northern suburbs?… In the future, we would like to expand with such items as photo galleries, message boards and additional links to serve the sports-crazed communities in this part of Metro Detroit.  Who knows?  Maybe one day we will be able to expand into even more communities in Oakland County.Who would have thought that hours spent underneath those bleachers would lead to this? The seed was planted many years ago and has grown into a forest of passion for local sports. Now the idea, the leg work, the hour, and the web site has finally arrived. Catch the fever. I know I did many years ago. Game time is here.  Grab your seat and popcorn — and enjoy.” Read more here
