    Our University of Idaho football and Lewis-Clark State hoops writer filled the SE vacancy at our sister paper (Moscow-Pullman Daily News), creating this opening.

    With two NCAA I schools, an NAIA power (which hosts the NAIA World Series every year) and around 30 high schools in Idaho and Washington, there's a lot to cover up here.

    Great people to work for, too.
