RIP Pete Goering

  1. Pete Goering, a longtime sports writer, sports editor and executive editor at the Topeka Capital-Journal died Saturday after a two-year battle with lung cancer.

    For any of you, like me, who grew up in Kansas, Pete was a great influence and had an impact on a lot of aspiring sports scribes who went to Kansas and Kansas State from the mid-1970s through a few years ago. Great, unassuming guy who knew how it needed to be done and showed a lot of us the way.

    You'll be missed Pete, and tip a few with Allen Quakenbush and Bob Hentzen for all of us who know the three of you.

    NOTE: Sorry I didn't see the earlier post. But Pete is worth a DB, so what the hell.
