"Sports Rewind" Will Feature Pictures From Chattanooga's Sports Past

Send Your Sports Photos And Feature Ideas To The Chattanoogan.com

Sunday, March 15, 2020 - by Dennis Norwood

In the past few days we have seen our world turned upside down in almost every conceivable manner. We have never been in waters as uncharted as those in which we now sail.  Our daily lives have been unsettled as we see our daily routines from work to entertainment and everyday life to even the manner in which we worship, change in such sweeping terms.

Here on The Chattanoogan.com Sports staff we’ve seen our days go from full speed ahead to full stop as one sporting event after another is canceled. With each new press release our calendar has gone from full to emptier. While we collectively hate to see it happen, we understand the necessity for it all. Above all else, the safety of those we report on and report for is of the utmost importance.

Our plan is to reach out and find those feature stories that are out there and bring them to you as often as possible, both on our normal Sports page and our Prep Sports page. We also plan to take this time, through our collection of photographs, to look back and reflect on sporting moments from the past in a feature we call “Sports Rewind.”

If you have any old sports photos you’d like to share, to please send them to us so we can show them off.. If you have any ideas for feature stories on players, coaches or events, we’d like to hear about those, as well.

Please send your photos to chattanooganphotos@gmail.com. If you have an idea for a feature story, please send it to me at dennisnorwood56@gmal.com. For photos, please send along a bit information as to who is in the picture, what the event was and where it took place, along with any other information that might help us explain what it is going on. Please include the name of the original photographer so that we can give them credit.

We look forward to hearing and seeing Chattanooga’s sports history through your eyes. Meanwhile, we will continue to ensure you have the most up-to-date information possible on how COVID-19 is affecting our world.

Thank you for making The Chattanoogan.com your source for local news.
