This is my last post on the Varsity Extra blog and tomorrow's story about Middleton's 4A girls basketball state championship will be my final story in the Idaho Statesman.
I have accepted the position of sports editor at the Helena Independent Record in Montana and will move there next week.
It has been a pleasure serving the Treasure Valley high school sports scene since I arrived here eight years ago. In six years with the Statesman, I had the privilege of working with some great journalists, athletes, parents, administrators and officials, and wish you all well. I will continue to follow the Idaho sports scene from afar for years to come.
While Montana is my home — I was born and raised there — Idaho will always be close to my heart. My wife and I started our family here and we're all better for it. My two daughters, and my wife and I will be sure to visit the Gem State often.
P.S. Thank you Middleton girls basketball for sending me off proper and congratulations on a fantastic season.
