Gary Borders

For the first time in more than two decades, Commentator Gary Borders covered a football game. But he wasn't filing a story on deadline. He was showing his journalism students how to function in the press box, minus the whiskey shots downed by the sportswriters of yesteryear.

Gary Borders has been an East Texas journalist and editor for more than 40 years. He works now as a freelance writer, editor and photographer. You can see his work at garyborders.com. He has written for World Wildlife magazine, Texas Monthly, Texas Observer and Airstream Life.
