    Stepping out from behind my usual name here ...

    David Teel, my colleague and long-time columnist at the Daily Press in Newport News, Va., was named today as part of the Class of 2014 for the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame.

    He is the 22nd media member to be honored over the years and the fourth from our paper.

    Met David and some of his colleagues when I interviewed there a few years back. Terrific columnist. Great guy. Everyone there made me feel welcome.

    I got in touch with David a couple years back when I was still in college on the advice of an instructor who was a friend of his. I contacted him out of the blue and asked him to look over a couple of my clips, and, with no prior contact, he took the time to read them and give me some feedback. I've never forgotten that. Class A individual.

    David Teel is one of the gifts this profession still has to offer. I count my times talking with him in the RIR media center as great memories.

    Congratulations to a fantastic man who deserves this greatly.

  9. Worked with this guy and loved every minute of it. He helped me to improve my game significantly, and was totally gracious with his time in doing so. Great writer and reporter, and even greater person. But I could say that about pretty everybody at that shop.
