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.

Here's hoping that Collierville Schools will realize the press wasn't out to be its enemy in covering a high school football game. Only providing reporting of high school sports as we've always done.
