George Edmonson

Last Wednesday I was watching the Miami Heat game while on vacation and I was saddened when I heard that Miami-Dade College sports information director George Edmonson had passed away.

George was the SID when I got my first real newspaper writing experience as a student at Miami-Dade and although we didn't work together a great deal, we always got a long great and he was there to help whenever I needed information to write a story.

Then at the Herald during my years as a sports clerk, we'd often chat for a little bit about sports over the phone as if he'd known me forever.

From former Metropolis sports editor, Andre Fernandez, I want to extend my personal condolences to his family.
