Silary to Write, Photograph PC Sports
Sports writer Ted Silary OPC '69, retired from a 36-year career at the Philadelphia Daily News, will be on campus several days a week writing about and photographing PC athletics. His work will appear right here, at penncharter.com/SportsZone.
Silary will continue to publish TedSilary.com, his popular website about high school sports.
Silary has covered high school sports in Philadelphia since December 1975, first for two years for the old Philadelphia Bulletin, then from December 1977 through August 2013 for the Philadelphia Daily News. At Penn Charter, he wrote for The Mirror and, as a senior, wrote a weekly wrapup on PC sports for the now-defunct Germantown Courier. He played varsity football and basketball.
On his website Silary explains that he had opportunities to "move up" to college or professional beats at the Daily News, but politely declined. "Why would I give up the best job at this paper? There's nothing more enjoyable than reporting on the triumphs of young people."
