In anticipation of the upcoming high school football season, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette will provide area fans with everything they need to prepare for the games with the newspaper's annual preview magazine, "Football Fever 2013: Faces of the Game," available Wednesday.
"With the start of high school football just around the corner, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette is proud to offer 'Football Fever 2013: Faces of the Game," said Bernard A. Oravec, Sun-Gazette publisher. "This glossy magazine of nearly 100 pages highlights and previews 17 local high school programs in our readership area."
Along with coverage of local high school football teams, readers also can expect many feature stories and tools to help them get ready for the upcoming season on the gridiron.
"In addition to team previews, the magazine includes schedules, statistics and players to watch for in 2013. There also are special features on cheerleaders and coaches," Oravec noted.
The magazine will be an inserted value-added gift to home subscribers on Wednesday. Oravec noted that this is the first year the magazine will be included in newspapers for Sun-Gazette home-delivery subscribers. Others wishing to get their copy of the magazine may do so at select retailers. The magazine will not be available in newspapers on news racks or vending machines.
"'Football Fever' will be inserted into Wednesday, Aug. 14th, editions of home delivery newspapers," Oravec said. "The magazine also will be available for sale for $4.95 per edition at local Wegman's, Weis Markets and Walmarts."
