Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

Mike Norvell had just returned to his office from a day of recruiting in Memphis high schools when he saw a tweet from my former colleague Mark Giannotto speculating about his future.
