I met Buddy Hurlock in 2001, fresh out of college. He gave me a road map to Delaware high school sports, which I dutifully followed. Without him, I would have been completely lost at my first job as a reporter. This is an appreciation for the man whose wit, good-natured persona and love of hot dogs will be deeply missed.
About The Rebel State
We like writing, we like sports a lot, we like talking about sports -- so why not combine all of those likes into one endeavor?
Why are we The Rebel State? It's a nod to Jenn and John's stint in the sports department of The Sacramento Bee, where they were part of a merry band of fun-loving, trash-talking, exceptionally snarky co-workers that occupied a corner of cubicles in the office. That merry band of co-workers lovingly called themselves "The Rebel State."
