2007 WHS Graduate Alex Meisch finds calling behind the camera

Alex Meischby Garrett Wilson, Sumner Newscow —  For most people working in sports is nothing more than a pipe dream. But for Alex Meisch it is a reality.Meisch, a 2007 Wellington High School graduate, is currently interning for the Minnesota Vikings as a member of their video staff.He said the majority of what he does is film practices and games for the players and coaches to watch. Even at times editing film for players specifically and sending it straight to a player’s iPad.Meisch started as journalism major at Butler County Community College in El Dorado. He began filming games and practices for the Butler County football team, even traveling with the team to both National Championship games in 2008 and 2009.After two years, Meisch knew he had found his calling.“I loved what I was doing and just didn’t want to stop,” Meisch said.So Meisch knew he had to take the next step to big time college athletics. He asked around and eventually moved on to the University of Kansas.Before long he was traveling with the Kansas Jayhawks as a member of their film staff.“Traveling with KU was great because they have about eight people on the staff but only two or three actually travel,” Meisch said.After three and a half years at KU, Meisch again began to look to the next level. He networked and talked to people and eventually found his way to Minnesota.“When I got the nod I was told that over 350 others had applied,” Meisch said.Not bad for a kid from small town Wellington.Meisch talked about how different the jump from college to the NFL is.“The Vikings have about three people on staff whereas there would be six to eight.” Miesch said. “Plus they treat you a lot better in the NFL.”When asked about the future Meisch said he wants to stay in sports and hopefully the NFL.“I would like to get a job with Dallas or Denver so I could be close to home,” Meisch said.But after five and a half years Meisch said he is more than happy with where he is now.“I am very blessed to be here,” Meisch said.Meisch did leave on piece of advice for anyone wanting to get into this field.“Practice, practice, then practice some more,” Meisch said.If you know of a Wellington High School graduate who is now doing significant things in the world, send us an e-mail at sumnernewscow@gmail.com Close Forgot password?

Rising star Logan Mize takes to the Wellington stage Thursday

first_imgLogan Mize at a recent performance in Colorado.by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For four years, Logan Mize, a 2003 Clearwater High School graduate, was a running back for the Indians. And every time his team played the Wellington Crusaders, he was on the losing end.Come this Thursday, Mize returns not with a football helmet but a guitar. And he is on the cusp of being a major country music star.Mize will be the featured performer this Thursday night at 9 p.m. at the Kansas Wheat Festival downtown street dance in Wellington. His performance will be part of what is arguably the best lineup of entertainers to ever perform at the Wheat Festival.Jason Boyd opens for Mize at 8 p.m. on Thursday. Friday “The Banned” will be on the main stage in front of Memorial Auditorium at 9 p.m.Then on Saturday, Kinsey Sandler, who is a country rocker from Oklahoma, will take to the downtown Wellington stage at 9 p.m.The Mize concert has been a two-year deal in the making. He was originally set to perform on stage at Memorial Auditorium around Thanksgiving in 2014, but schedules were unable to mesh.So Mize will instead be her Thursday, set to perform a slew of songs including his latest hit, “Can’t Get Away from a Good Time.” Close Forgot password?

Thank you for your input. 0 Vote up Vote down Hmmm · 266 weeks ago Can anyone explain to me the need for a button this year? Is this not going to be like all past street dances where you could bring lawn chairs and just sit in the street with your kids to watch the Performer? Is it not going to be kid friendly this year? How is this going to be enforced that the buttons are needed? Does everyone, young and old, need buttons or is there an age limit?

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Sumner County residents can safely call Mize one of their own. Logan’s home is on a river in Peck. His grandfather opened Mize’s Thrifty, a grocery store in Clearwater.“I used to get off work and take the dirt road route to watch the Kansas sunset,” Mize said in the 2015 Official Travel Guide. “As much as I love traveling and meeting new people, there’s definitely a sense of feeling at home.”The Mize stop in Wellington will be a quick one in Kansas this week. It will be his one and only performance this week in his native state. He will be in Nebraska the next night on a tour that has taken him recently through Rhode Island, Delaware, New York City and Milwaukee.Mize is not quite a headliner in Nashville, but he is very close. “Can’t Get Away from a Good Time” reached the Billboard No. 58 position in 2015. His latest album Pawn Shop Guitar peaked at No. 32.He is most certainly working the stage for Country’s biggest acts. He has opened for Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Leann Rimes, Eric Church, Diers Bentley, the Charlie Daniels Band, Blake Shelton, Stoney LaRue, Hank Williams and was part of a special tribute with Merle Haggard.He also doubles as a song writer for performers like Bucky Covington.“It has been a lot of work getting where I am now,” Mize told Sumner Newscow. “I spent the bulk of my 20s driving a van and playing music in any bar I could find.”Mize signed with Big Yellow Dog Music in April 2009.“Nashville is a funny place and it most certainly is an interesting industry,” Mize said. “I stay in the lane and do what I do. If something doesn’t work, I’ll tweak it a little. But you have to be true to yourself.”To get into the Mize concert requires a Wheat Festival button. You can purchase one at the door for $10 or $5 if you purchase one at the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce or at an official Kansas Wheat Festival event.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Key Tigers go down with mystery virus

first_imgReports suggest a number of players at the club have been struck down with the virus that was picked up by forward Kyle Lovett in New Zealand last weekend. Now, Woods has been ordered to stay home by the club, and faces a race against the clock to be fit for the Tigers’ biggest game of the season. “We’ve had it going through the group for a little bit now,” coach Jason Taylor told Fairfax. “We’ve had a couple struggling with it prior to the Penrith game and a couple prior to last week’s game (against the Warriors). Now we have a couple more again. But the beauty of this a little bit is it’s happened early in the week.”Woods was the best of the Tigers against the Warriors, with his performance inspiring his side to a 36-24 victory at Mount Smart Stadium. Hooker Dene Halatau has also been struck down with the illness, however both he and Woods are expected to play against the Raiders on Sunday.last_img read more

San Dimas 35, Northview 34

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN DIMAS — The San Dimas High School defense sacked Northview High quarterback Damian James on the final play of the game to preserve the win in the Valle Vista League opener for both schools. Following a voluntary safety by Saints punter Eric Samples, the Vikings got the ball back in San Dimas territory with just over a minute to play and a chance to win. James scrambled 23 yards down to the Saints 21-yard line, well within kicker Jeremy Hernandez’ range, but two false start penalties and the final sack gave the Saints the win. The Saints had only one pass completion in the game but it was a 15-yard touchdown pass from Samples to tight end Deryck Marquez midway through the fourth quarter. That gave San Dimas the lead, 35-32. center_img Ryan Richard carried 24 times for 148 yards and two touchdowns for the Saints. Richard was complemented by fellow running back Roy Curry, who added 75 yards on 12 carries. That included a second-quarter, 89-yard kickoff return that gave the Saints a 14-13 lead. James had 123 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for the Vikings. Will Davis carried 25 times for 175 yards and a 5-yard touchdown that gave the Vikings a 32-28 lead ending the third quarter. — Nate Hawkins last_img read more
