BMATT247: Big shoes to fill

I’ve been in this business for more than 12 years and have never known anyone to provide better coverage of a college program than Phillip Marshall. That goes for any website, newspaper or magazine. And that goes for any team across the country.

I’ve been very fortunate to work with a true professional like Phillip these past few years and I’m so thankful he’ll remain an important part of this site through his columns. We’re also very lucky to have Keith Niebuhr and Austin Penny joining us. I’m very excited to be working with both.

Now, it’s my task to take over team coverage for I can never replace Phillip but I will promise our subscribers that I care about their needs and will do my very best to live up to their high expectations.

My main goals in providing team coverage for our site is to be the leader in content and breaking news and always to conduct ourselves in a professional manner.

Without going into too many details about my plans for coverage this summer, I plan to update the football team’s progress through summer workouts and to explore the team position-by-position. I will take a look at each of Auburn’s upcoming opponents.

It’s also very important to me to continue some of the great features that Phillip started such as For Your Eyes Only.

I will also be available on our message boards to answer your questions and give opinions on a range of subjects.

I look forward to the challenge of taking over team coverage. Keith, Austin and I will work together to provide the very best coverage of Auburn sports and recruiting.

And to Phillip, I want to say, ‘Thank You.’ Thank you for working your tail off. Thank you for being a true professional in every way. And Thank you for being a friend.
