A lot can happen in a decade. For me, I've spent the entire 10 years covering sports at the Observer-Reporter. My first shift at the O-R was on Sept. 28, 1999 and that night I did my first story for the publication - a small feature on then South Fayette High School quarterback Niel Loebig.
He went one to become one of the top passers in WPIAL history and the starting quarterback at Duquesne University.
I went on to ... well, not a lot has changed for me professionally.
As the 10th anniversary date approaches, I felt it might be fun to take a look back at the past decade.
Each day, the Varsity Letters will release a new Top 10 list. Some of it will be lighthearted fun. Hopefully, much of it will bring back memories for followers of local high school sports.
The lists begins later today when I reveal my Top 10 local high school teams of the past decade. The series will conclude next Monday with the Top 10 high school athletes.
