We’re raising a journalism army

Anyone who has been to a Jay County High School wrestling match or tournament will understand what I’m talking about. If you’re chatting with one coach and turn around, you’ll see a few more. Another pair will be on the mat shouting instructions to a wrestler. A few more will …
