    Heard today that Todd Kelly, longtime prep reporter for the Clarion-Ledger, is leaving to become Director of Development for the Mississippi High School Activities Association. I'm a bit surprised, considering how poorly run that organization is. Maybe it provides better job security than working for Gannett.

    Anyway, that's a pretty good gig at the C-L. Rod Walker is the other main prep guy. He's good people.

    It's going to take a lot to live up to the Rod and Todd show. Good luck Todd.

    Typewriter factories might have better job security than Gannett.

    Todd is replacing Phyfa Eiland, who is riding off into the sunset with Ennis the Penis. Todd will be missed by us preps guys in the Magnolia State. Always helpful and a hell of a nice guy.

    All the best to Todd, a helluva writer and a class act.

    If anyone deserves it, it's Todd. Good luck, Todd.

    Should've chimed in sooner, but here's another "attaboy" for Todd.

    The rich history of sports in Mississippi has been brought to light over and over by the work of Todd and others in the C-L preps department, plus many good writers around the state.
    Nationally, Mississippi is right up there with any state in the union when it comes to sports "stories".
    From a per capita standpoint, anyway.
    Todd, it sounds like, is just moving to a new method of chronicalling all of this and being involved in the process.
    Good thing Mississippi isn't losing him completely.
    The MHSAA will be enhanced by adding this guy to the team.
    Hope to see you soon, Todd. Good luck.
