This photo captures a moment where words were worthless and being charged to describe such moments was one of the most rewarding working moments here at the Perham Focus. While all the state runs by so many teams were special in their own ways, this 2011 boys basketball championship run to Target Center was remarkable. Photo by Paul Gregersen, someone who routinely gave of his free time to take fantastic photos at state tournaments for Perham and New York Mills schools.

See ya ‘round, Perham.

The end of August marks the last of my time in Perham for the Focus, as I have accepted the sports editor position at my hometown newspaper in Detroit Lakes.


I have been covering for both schools and newspapers while the new Focus sports editor, Jason Groth, moves to Perham and prepares to take over what I would describe as a never-ending sprint of road trips and winning.
