Tittrington: Firebirds big fans of bronze
March 11, 2007
The list of people who have no use for consolation games at the Kansas State High School Activities Association state basketball tournaments is a long one, full of administrators, coaches, players, fans and journalists who see no point in two teams battling for third place 18 hours after watching their dreams of winning a state championship come to a screeching halt.

March 9, 2007
It’s no secret Free State High senior Jenna Brantley will do just about anything to get a laugh. On Thursday night, she admitted she was the one who needed the giggles.
Tittrington: Ottawa’s Ojeleye impresses
January 9, 2007
With 20 years of coaching experience at his disposal entering the 2006-07 season, it’s safe to assume Ottawa High boys basketball coach David Grover knows a thing or two about evaluating talent.
Tittrington: Tongie enjoying reversal
December 19, 2006
Finding the silver lining in a 2-19 season is a lot like looking for the electric bill that was inadvertently tossed out with last week’s garbage. Sure, you can probably find it if you look hard enough, but you have to dig through an awful lot of foul stuff before finally getting there.
Tittrington: LHS embraces inner self
December 12, 2006
Of all the many sacred traditions that dot the sporting landscape at Lawrence High, there’s one I never wanted to see fade away. For simplicity’s sake, I’ll call it the Chuck and Duck offense.
Tittrington: Tough fall for area football
October 31, 2006
When the Kansas State High School Activities Assn. unveiled its 2006 postseason football schedule, area fans had two good reasons to look forward to a Halloween buzz.
Tittrington: Lions need to regroup
October 24, 2006
In a perfect world, I’d like to see the Lawrence High-Free State football game take place in Week 9, on the final Friday of the regular season.
Tittrington: One run cost LHS the most
October 21, 2006
Football coaches are loathe to look at one play in a body of work and point to it as the deciding factor in the final outcome of a game.
Tittrington: A rivalry worth watching
October 17, 2006
Forget black cats, haunted houses and the little old lady down the street who hands out apples instead of Snickers bars on Halloween night.
Tittrington: Seabury seeking good sports
October 10, 2006
Since signing on at Seabury Academy a decade ago, Brian Clyne has made no secret of his quest to bring a higher level of sportsmanship to high school athletics.
Tittrington: A call is all we ask
October 3, 2006
Let’s play a quick game of word association. When I say “football,” what’s the first word, phrase or image that pops into your mind?
Tittrington: Paramore has Kaws hummin’
September 26, 2006
During a round-table discussion about area high school football on this week’s edition of High School Spodcasters, each of the three people taking part informally decided to “pick their pony.” Eric Sorrentino, our Free State High beat writer, opened with his thoughts on Tonganoxie in the wake of the Chieftains’ decisive 28-7 victory Friday night over fellow unbeaten Mill Valley.
Pigskin plotlines aplenty
September 19, 2006
The Sunflower State’s high school football season is three weeks old, which makes now a good time to offer some initial evaluations about how things are shaking out on the gridiron in Lawrence and some of the surrounding communities.
Tittrington: 12 years too long for KU
June 2, 2006
I’ve had 12 years to think about how I’d write this column. Yet, now that the day is here, I’m finding that I don’t know exactly what it is I want to say. There is pride. There is joy. There is relief. Yet there is also knowledge that a group of 35 or so young men will never be looked at the same way again.
Sometimes, the KSHSAA just doesn’t get it
May 16, 2006
Ask just about anyone involved with Kansas high school athletics, and they’ll tell you the Kansas State High School Activities Assn. has its heart in the right place.
