    The Brownsville Herald — a 16,000 daily, 18,500 Sunday in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley — seeks sports writing candidates.

    The ideal candidate is a highly motivated, competent reporter who is well-organized, loves the job and hates being beaten by the competition. This position will include high school coverage, general assignments and desk work.

    The Brownsville-Los Fresnos area loves its sports, mainly of the high school, boxing and soccer varieties. It also is home to The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College, an NAIA institution.

    High school sports are covered extensively, and the paper is also involved in RGVSports.com The Magazine, a full-color, glossy quarterly high school sports publication written and designed by the sports departments of the Herald, Valley Morning Star and The Monitor. The Herald sports staff also is part of RGVSports.com, our high school sports website.

    The Herald offers its employees a competitive salary and benefits. Fluency in Spanish is a big plus, along with experience with page design (Quark and InDesign).

    Interested candidates can send a cover letter, resume and work samples to Bryan Read, East Valley Sports Editor, at The Brownsville Herald, 1135 E. Van Buren, Brownsville, TX 78520. You can also email your resume and clips to bread@brownsvilleherald.com. For more information, call (956) 982-6621.

    The Herald is an Equal Opportunity employer. Non-U.S. citizens wishing to apply for a position must already be in possession of a valid work visa and other appropriate documentation.

    I realize I started it, but how about we get this back on track and discuss the opening? Not the place for a school-the-rookie threadjack.

    How many high schools are in the area?

    There are eight schools in the area that we cover extensively, two others that we get to when we can and a couple of very small TAPPS schools that have sprouted up recently.

    I can personally vouch that you will earn your keep in Brownsville. The loot may not be much but the experience will help you down the line.

    Have an online friend down there who is a retired teacher, but still runs the clock at football and basketball games and does some work with the indie league team there (OP may know of whom I speak but, no outing [/spnited]). Sounds like you will not lack for stories.
