               Three of Terry Frei's seven state Sportswriter of the Year awards, selected in peer voting by the

                    National Sports Media Association. These are for Colorado in 2000, 2015 and 2016.    

 

 

In my two stints at The Denver Post, totaling 30 years of service, I wrote about 10,000 stories, columns and blogs on the constant variety of Colorado sports. I served in a hybrid role as reporter, feature writer at large and columnist, with the specific duties evolving through staff cuts and other changes. Most notably, late in my stay I enjoyed covering the NHL and college football at the same time, doing the scheduling myself to make that feasible. My selected listed and linked pieces below barely scratch the surface. -- T.F.
