Unfortunately, Will DeBoard announced his resignation from the Modesto Bee in today's edition. We had been fearful that he would be leaving due to all of the staff cutbacks the paper has had to make over the last several months, so this was not unexpected... but disappointing none the less. In my opinion, Will is the only Bee Sports Staff writer that was not prejudiced against Central Catholic. His articles were fair and fact filled only... not the "opinion" pieces that we get from other writers on the staff. Will was a strong supporter of high school wresting and his knowledge of the current athletes as well as his memory of noteworthy wrestlers from the past always amazed me.
Will was always friendly and kind on the sidelines. I will miss his company as well as his writing. We wish him well and hope to see work again soon.
