My season with Florida and Florida State football

Added on by Monica Herndon.

Last July my editors asked if I wanted to take the lead on the college football beat. I was hesitant. There were so many things I wanted to work on, sports included, but I wasn’t sure about the time commitment. After some deliberation I decided to go for it.  

I spent the season covering Florida and Florida State. I traveled to Gainesville, Tallahassee, Orlando and Atlanta, while following the teams. I did manage a few Tampa Bay high school games during bye weeks as well. I returned to Atlanta on New Year’s Eve for the Peach Bowl CFB Playoff between Alabama and Washington. It’s been an incredible season of growth, and I’m looking forward to wrapping up the year at the CFB Playoff Title game in Tampa, on January 9.
