Ted Silary

Ted Silary has covered high school sports in Philadelphia since December 1975, first for two years for the old Philadelphia Bulletin and since December 1977 for the Philadelphia Daily News. He specifically covers the city beat, which includes the Public, Catholic and Inter-Ac Leagues. Many times through the years, Ted has been given opportunities to "move up" in the business by switching to college or professional beats. He has politely declined. His feelings on the matter: Why would I give up the best job at this paper? There's nothing more enjoyable than reporting on the triumphs of young people.

Though Frank "Roscoe" Natale is only in his ninth year of teaching and coaching at Edward Bok Tech, don't assume his feelings for the place are minimal.
