Jayson Jenks starts as our new prep coordinator next week and wanted us to pass along this message:
In fact, I’m arriving in Seattle eager to start talking with anyone and everyone, regardless if it’s at my expense. I’m eager to become a part of the community. I’m eager to tell the best stories possible, no matter how obscure, no matter how small or large the school is. I want to make sure no story slips through the cracks.
But I also need your help.
I wish I could be everywhere at once and cover every game and every sport in the area. The reality, as you know, is quite different. So on my first official day on the job, I’m going to call in a favor. I’m going to ask that if you know of an interesting story – about a coach, a team, a player, a trainer, a manager – please let me know about it. There is no such thing as a bad story idea. And while I can’t promise that every idea will turn into a story, I promise that I’ll thoughtfully consider each and every one.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to get started.
Starting Monday, you can call Jayson at 206-464-8277 or e-mail him at JJenks@seattletimes.com.
