Local sports reporters losing numbers game

... Perhaps that’s why it was easy to overlook the absence of a shrinking group of people.

As I looked left and right and all around, something became clear. There was only one full-time newspaper reporter at the game: Me.

When I first came to the Los Angeles Times Community News in 2011, such a game would have commanded the attention of multiple newspaper reporters from different outlets.

That’s part of the fun of Friday night football: reporters beating each other to parking spaces and postgame interviews all while watching the same game and yet ending up with different stats.

Despite the friendly rivalry and often thanks to an assist from fellow scribes on a missed play or tackle, coaches were quoted, kids were written about and the community was informed about its local teams
