    I thought I would elaborate there. We are looking at this a couple of different ways. But, we are just looking for the best fit. This could be a standard HS reporter position (a solid recent grad) or it could be for HS sports editor (2-3 years of experience or more or maybe a Masters).

    The basics of the job are:

    Focusing on enterprise and feature stories
    Moderate amount of HS game coverage
    Coordinating the game coverage with the rest of the staff
    Writing weekly player of the weeks
    Coordinate stringers for game coverage

    That is the simple end. If you are interested send your stuff to hr@lubbockonline.com
