MURFREESBORO – Daily News Journal sports writer Tom Kreager has been keeping the people of Rutherford County up-to-date on sports for the past 14 years.
“I believe high school sports still has a level of purity that is lost in college and professional ranks,” Kreager said while he toured the county Monday for football’s first practice in pads.
Kreager has patrolled the press boxes at the high schools in Rutherford and Cannon counties for The Daily News Journal for the past six years.
From his perch above the action on the field, he has collected the latest sports news that he then broadcasts to his dedicated followers through video, online, print and social media.
He said his readers might be surprised to know he really doesn’t have a favorite school.
“Honest,” Kreager said.
