To The Post readers and Ohio hockey fans,

Thank you for taking the time to get to this landing page. As a team of writers, designers and editors, we’ve worked diligently to present nothing but our best work to you, the readers.

Anthony and I have covered the team extensively since the summer. In our short time covering the team, we’ve learned how important Ohio hockey is to Athens.

This landing page, designed by the talented Taylor Johnston, showcases some of our most challenging pieces yet. We hope that these stories serve their respective purposes to you.

As for myself, a couple stories maybe worth another glance:
1. Rex, the dinosaur
2. Last season on the ice
These stories are what I’m most proud of, and are something I’d want to read as a fan.

From Anthony:
1. Jake Jakuszeit, the voice of Bird Arena
2. Behind the scenes of an Ohio road trip

Stay tuned for our weekend coverage of Ohio hockey's 60th anniversary celebration.
