Skyline Sports — Northern Arizona

Greetings Lumberjacks fans,

This is Colter Nuanez. I am the director of creativity and senior writer for Skyline Sports (skylinesportsmt.com), a new newspaper-style online publication covering the Big Sky Conference. I've covered the league as a newspaper sportswriter since 2006. You can read more about me here: http://skylinesportsmt.com/about-us/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

With our new endeavor, we will have beat reporting on Montana State along with weekly podcasts and features about the rest of the Big Sky. I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know I'll be providing Northern Arizona features and coverage throughout the season.

Our goal is to be able to cover the entire league with the same prevalence as we give to the flagship schools. Any interest we can get going at NAU would be a huge plus. Thanks for reading, nice to meet you and don't hesitate to drop a line with comments or questions.
