Great Article from the Alligator today


With the help of Google Reader and RSS subscriptions, I probably skim upwards of 50 stories, including topics that are non-sports related, per day. So when I read a feature article from first line to last, it usually means that the story was very good. Such is the case with the Alligator’s weekly Friday feature story on the Florida football team. The writer, Kyle Maistri, who I met last year in a sports reporting class, demonstrates a well-written story with a good lead hook, balance, excellent quotes from multiple sources, great insight of what’s it’s like to compete for a starting position at one of the nation’s most prominent football programs, and a perfect kicker. It’s probably the best story I’ve read from the Alligator this year.
