It looks like Sam Carchidi, who for many years has been covering high school sports for the Philadelphia Inquirer, will be the new Flyers beat writer. Sam’s a solid professional, but his passion has been high school sports for quite a while. I sure hope he can find the same joy in covering the game so many Philadelphians love above all others.
Flyers fans are demanding consumers. I’m a little worried there’ll be a rude welcome for the new guy on the block. But I’m looking forward to seeing what Sam does with this.
