Welcome to Sun Sports Central

Hobbs QB Brayden Price
  Welcome to my new blog, Sun Sports Central. In starting this blog, I'm hoping to give you, the reader, an additional outlet to read my thoughts on the Lea County sports scene while also touching every now and then on regional and national sports topics (I promise, I'll limit my rants about my alma mater University of Oregon).
  Having worked for the News-Sun sports department since 2006, I understand and appreciate how fortunate we in Lea County are to have a thriving sports scene with plenty of community support, which makes my job great. With Hobbs, Lovington, Eunice, Jal and Tatum athletics always in the mix in one sport or another to go along with New Mexico Junior College and University of the Southwest, there are always interesting tidbits we may not get to in a story or think about until after our newspaper deadline. Hopefully here, we can get it in plus other additional thoughts, photos or whatever.
