    There are a few things that are readily apparent when you see Forsyth's Jay Kaufman play baseball. First, the senior standout can flat-out play the game. And then there's the bushy red beard exploding from his face.

    Lamar's Tripp Tucker loves the Royals, smelly jerseys, Coach Scott Bailey's preseason football practices...and "Let It Go." The senior quarterback/point guard takes time out for a few questions.

    Lamar's Trenton Mooney loves Jesus, chicken patty day in the caf, and "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea. The North Dakota State football commit takes time out to answer a few questions about himself.

    The 2012-13 school year has come to a close, and it was a memorable one for area high school sports teams and athletes. Joboo takes a look back on a memorable year and offers up The Golden Joboos for some deserving athletes, teams and events.

    Former Glendale head baseball coach Howard Bell knows all about facing adversity. In fact, after being diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, Coach Bell has faced the terminal illness head on...with a smile on his face.

    You never see a football coach in pads, or a basketball coach wearing a uniform that says "Coach" on the back, so why do baseball managers wear uniforms? Joboo gets to the bottom of this and other sports fashion issues.

    Forsyth head baseball coach Jim Julian does not want his players concentrating solely on baseball year round. In fact, he actively encourages his panther players to participate in other sports at Forsyth.

    In this moving essay, Joboo writes about a fictional boy and his dream of playing baseball. Without the proper perspective and encouragement, though, those boyhood dreams can become nightmares. A must read for all parents with young athletes.

    Branson’s Mike Compton, a right-handed strikeout machine, is headed to Florida State after capping off a standout prep career on the mound for the Pirates.

    The Halfway Cardinal baseball team—which posted a 61-4 record from the fall of 1996 to the spring of 1998—captured the 1998 Class 1A state championship.

    Baseball has become a year round sport. Scott Puryear used to be against "select" baseball teams, but the success of and opportunities granted to area players has caused Puryear to change his opinion on these traveling teams.
