Sacramento, CA, March 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- McClatchy High School -- Restore the Roar is happy to announce that they have reached terms with Skye Dickenson, a professional content creator specializing in sports and entertainment who graduated from the esteemed high school in 1996.
Dickenson will create articles, bio pieces, blogs, videos, pictures and other creative content-based works to help promote and give positive exposure to the plethora of CKM athletic squads that compete for local titles annually. The Sacramento-based man of many talents has formerly been the voice of a West Coast pizza chain, and currently has a collection of corporate clients.
“Creating content is a relatively new, internet-driven profession that is at many times an open canvas for creativity. I truly love it. The chance to work with and promote athletics at my high school alma mater is a dream situation,” said Dickenson, who pitched for CKM baseball squads in the mid-1990 that featured future and now former pros Nick Johnson and Steve Holm.
Founded in 2007, Restore the Roar is a McClatchy booster club comprised of passionate alumni, family and friends of the program interested in honoring the distinguished past of the high school and its athletics, as well as peering keenly into the future with designs of doing big things every sporting season.
Founding members Bob Sertich, Rodney Kunisaki, George Potiris and Traci Schanz filed the original papers, and many other alumni and supporters have put in time and energy toward the cause in the 10+ years since. This includes Denis Ishisaka, who voiced his support of the move recently. "Restore the Roar is excited to tap into Skye's expertise to help us with outreach to our alumni and supporters. We are excited to partner with him to help take our online presence to the next level."
Dickenson connected with Restore the Roar by way of Dr. Randall Brown, a CKM alum, former pro baseball player and retired chiropractor who currently works with the Girls Golf Team and the Sac State Men’s Golf Team. Brown is well-versed in local sports, all things golf, and how the human body can best be utilized to thrive in competitive atmospheres. Said Dr. Brown, “Soon after I became involved with Restore the Roar, I started thinking about online presence and alumni outreach. Having known Skye for a long time, I am confident he has the skills to ignite our effort and continue to restore the roar.”
Opened in 1937, CK McClatchy High School is located on Freeport Boulevard, within a short walk of William Land Park and the Sacramento Zoo. Over its 80+ years, it has produced a sizable list of world-class athletes, many of whom went on to have careers in pro sports.
The school has been setting modern-day high-water marks in the last few years, as well as the current year. The Girls Basketball Team climbed the jagged landscape to become California State Champions in 2015, winning the title and forever cementing their names in history. The 2017 Girls Basketball Team played in a Championship Game at Golden 1 Center. The Boys Soccer Team capped a successful 2017-18 campaign recently with appearances in the State Sectional Tournament, as well as the CIF Playoffs.
Several other CKM squads are in a position to hit their stride soon, in part thanks to a brand new, state-of-the-art track and football/soccer/lacrosse field that absorbs water like a sponge. New donations are always welcome, and are clearly being put to proper use. Anyone interested in following along or donating to one or more of a variety CKM teams can easily do so now at Facebook.com/McClatchySports and restoretheroar.org.
