Perhaps the combination of my internship coming to a close and this glorious weather we have been having has made November fly by. Then again, every month seems to. There is still lots to do in Columbus the next few weeks before I leave.
Football has most-likely come to a close for me. The second half of the season will come in another blog post, and then I'm looking forward to sitting down with the months of coverage and picking my favorite plays and features, also another blog post. I have a lot to say about high school football after covering it for 3+ months!
Anyway, here are some of my favorite clips from the month of November.
