Editors note

We could not have done this without you

We started this website because we believed under-served communities deserved better access to hyper-local sports coverage. We didn’t always spell the name right or make the most articulate point, but we delivered on our day one promise to increase the breadth of coverage across the 518. Our student contributors have since launched successful careers in media, sports, and other adjacent fields. While this website will no longer be updated, it remains active for the world to see what is possible when young people confront voids in their community.
