Clay Bailey, a lifelong Memphian, has worked as a reporter in the city four decades. He concentrated on suburban coverage for the bulk of his career, except for a stint as sports editor of The Daily Memphian when it launched in September 2018. He now is suburban editor and also serves as a freelance sports writer for The Associated Press.

For about four decades, the Cranberry Bowl was a tradition at a Whitehaven elementary school football field before finally giving way to injuries and old age.
