All-Area format takes attention in After Deadline

This week on “After Deadline,” sports writers Devin Golden and Chris Whitfield discuss The Daily Citizen’s 2013-14 All-Area Wrestling Team, which will be released Sunday, and some of the difficulties the sports staff has when trying to recognize the best athletes in each sport while sticking to the team concept.

This year’s wrestling season was another tough situation, as Dalton High School’s Sidney Wheeler and Southeast Whitfield’s Austin Allen were state finalists in the 182-pound weight class, yet usually only one person for each weight class makes the all-area lineup.

The weekly podcast, which is recorded at the WTTI-1530 AM studio in Rocky Face, is free for download and posted at noon each Wednesday at daltonnow.com.
