I Write About Sports

“It’s said all politics are local. So is all good sports writing. It comes down to storytelling, and to covering your backyard with heart and style. That’s exactly what John Bednarowski does in his new book. Read it. Savor it. Tell your friends about it.” 

— Terry Pluto, Cleveland Plain Dealer

John Bednarowski successfully captures the cultural essence of the Georgia sports he covers time and time again in this book. It’s an entertaining and informative read! The kind of reporting and storytelling that can only come from someone who has put his heart and soul into the community he covers. Sports reporters – the ones who last, and most importantly, the ones who do memorable work – are the ones whose passion for the subject matter jumps from the pages. As you’ll see in this book, JB has done that with gusto! Bednarowski has warmly embraced the sports community he reports on. You will embrace him back after reading this book!”

“John Bednarowski’s fascinating collection of columns and stories is rooted in Cobb County and the state of Georgia, but his voice extends far beyond one region of the country. John is the respected sports editor of the Marietta Daily Journal and the immediate past president of the Associated Press Sports Editors. With his vast experience, John takes us on a journey from the University of Georgia to Amen Corner, from high school football fields to the Atlanta Braves locker room. It’s a trip definitely worth taking.”
