Dear readers: Thank you for the memories

Body
My first day at the Guthrie News Leader was on Monday, January 21, 2013. That was just yesterday, right? It sure feels like it to me anyway. I’ll never forget walking in on my first day and immediately being thrown into the fire writing recap stories— needless to say, I was hooked. Now, after seven-and-a-half years, it’s time for me to say goodbye. That’s the single hardest sentence I think I have ever typed.

When Adversity Hits

Body

It was supposed to be L’liott Curry’s breakout season. After redshirting in 2015, and paying his dues in 2016, Curry started every game at wide receiver for the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos. He finished the year with 32 catches for 600 yards and six touchdowns. The surge in production seemed like it was only the beginning for Curry at UCO. The Bronchos tabbed him as one of their key players entering 2018, and Curry lived up to the label early on by hauling in 9 receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns in the first two games of the season.

A promising season cut short. It was at that moment that the Wildcats made a promise. They wouldn't feel this pain again. Next year, the Wildcats would be in the state tournament.
