Local Matters


The Pleasanton Express’ biggest and best Fall Sports Preview is on the stands today. I could not be prouder. To put together a preview that features five ISD’s football, volleyball, band, cheer, and dance teams is quite a feat.

Huge shout outs to the Pleasanton Express team responsible for this beautiful keepsake piece of sports journalism. Thanks goes out to Aaron Davidson, graphic artist, who designed the cover which was particularly challenging and all the attention-grabbing ads. Thank you to Tom Firme, sports editor, and Rebecca Pesqueda, reporter, who wrote all the stories and took the majority of the photos. Thank you to Hope Garza, office manager, who proofed and proofed and proofed. Thank you, Robbie Denson, who returned to work her magic on the final layout. We could not have done it without you. Thank you, Amanda Velasquez, digital marketing director and advertising manager, Rhonda Chancellor, business manager and Sonya Ortiz, ad sales rep who did a fantastic job of selling ads. Thank you to our intern Maddy Guajardo for helping to proof and identify photos. Thanks to Tammy Shannon, Memories on Main, for helping us with a much needed photo. You as always are a life-saver.

Thank you, readers, and thank you to every advertiser that made this Fall Sports Preview possible. Thank you for making community news possible and for showing your local love and support of high school sports. We appreciate you.
