Back in the saddle again

Saturday, I covered my first high school football game in 14 years.
Sunday, the college I covered during my sports writing career returned to the postseason after an absence of 19 years.
Concord of West Virginia won its conference title and earned a sixth-seed in the East in the Division II playoffs. Pretty good for a program that had struggled for most of the past 15 years.
I covered the school from 1987 to 1994, when they met several appearances in the NAIA playoff field. They won a game in the 1992 playoffs, but after that the league moved to Division II and Concord dropped from the top.
It's good to see the Mountain Lions restore the roar.
