Uvalde Leader-News sports editor James Volz found himself on the other side of reporting Monday night when the Uvalde High School Athletic Booster Club lauded the 41-year veteran journalist for unwavering support of local athletes.
In addition to filling more than an estimated 12,000 newspaper pages with news and photos of high school athletes since he went to work for the Leader-News in 1978, Volz has also announced game plays and, before that, operated the time clock during numerous sub-varsity and varsity sports contests.
