Welcome to Old School Sports Journal

Updated: Jul 1, 2019

Welcome to the first posting of Old School Sports Journal which has been founded to cover local community and high school sports continuing the legacy of "The Journal" which was published in Ogdensburg for over 100 years.

The site is dedicated to the memory of Charles W. "Chuck" Kelly, a true legend of journalism and community newspaper publication who started his 50 plus year career as a sportswriter for "The Journal and Advance News."

I welcome information from youth and adult sports, high school sports both varsity and JV, college sports and athletes who have gone to success at the collegiate levels and beyond.

Please feel free to contact me with game information and story ideas.

Information and pictures (if available) can be emailed to me at or by texting or calling 315-323-2490.

Please bear with me as the website is fine tuned in the weeks ahead.
