Julius Thompson covered high school sports
for The Philadelphia Bulletin from 1971 to '82,
when the paper went out of business, and was the first scholastic sports writer in
to put the focus where it belongs . . . on the KIDS.
Ted worked with Julius for two years,
beginning in Dec. '75, before moving to the Daily
News, and the two have remained friends since. Parents of many current athletes will
remember Julius from his Bulletin days, and he
undoubtedly wrote stories about some of them.
Julius now lives in Georgia and, in addition to
teaching at the high school and college levels, is a published author.
