From the Register-Mail:
Favorite story I did this year: My piece on the final weeks and days of Tim Heimann’s career as Knox College men’s basketball coach. Heimann was terrific to deal with and gave unrestricted access to himself and his players. It was clear that those who played for him certainly thought of him as more than a coach…..
Best interview: Knox coach Rob Purlee. He holds nothing back.
Best quote I got this year: “Remember, there’s a lot of colon.” — Former Knox coach Tim Heimann on a surgery to remove part of his organ.
