Messenger football tab
published on Aug. 23

The Messenger will present its annual award-winning preseason football tabloid in the Aug. 23 edition of the newspaper.
The special section, which has won either first or second place for 10 consecutive years in writing and design contests judged by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association, is sure to be a hot commodity again this year with expanded coverage to include 40 area high school teams.
The 36-page tabloid will match the largest-ever all-prep section put out in 2002. All three Obion County teams will be previewed extensively, as will Fulton City. All totaled, teams and prospects from six different regions in rural West Tennessee and western Kentucky will be featured.
This year’s edition will also include added features as well as the always-popular pullout schedule that lists the complete regular season slates of 40 schools.
