Sports Editor

3/8/18

The Oconee Enterprise, a weekly newspaper in Watkinsville, Ga., is seeking a full-time sports editor to cover the five high schools in the county.

Located about 10 minutes from Athens and the University of Georgia main campus, Oconee County has a lot to offer throughout the season, as schools in the area are routinely competing with the best in the state, especially during the spring season.

The editor will lead a two-person sports staff, which primarily covers five high schools.

Oconee County is a nice place to live for those who don’t like the college town of Athens, but for those that like the latter can certainly live in Athens as it’s just a short ride (and cheaper for the most part).
