Here’s how to write a notes package

by

The Daily Trojan offers both breaking news and fun tidbits in its football notes package about a pivotal football game set for Saturday. Josh Jovanelly observed that two Southern Cal defensive players sat out practice Tuesday. Linebacker Brian Cushing, a Butkus Award candidate, hurt his hip, and Kyle Moore has back spasms. Meanwhile, Ohio State cleared running back Chris ‘Beanie’ Wells to play. Jovanelly puts the injuries into perspective, offers updates on other previously hurt players at both Southern Cal and Ohio State, and describes how USC used more experienced players to simulate Ohio State’s offense. Plus, the writer included a note about Pete Carroll’s one-year stint as an assistant coach for the Buckeyes that includes a reminiscence about Woody Hayes. This, folks, is how to write a notes package.
