About me

Location Johnstown, PA
Introduction Hello, and welcome to The Varsity Club, a blog dedicated to sports in The Tribune-Democrat coverage area. My name is Mike Kovak and since July 9, 2012, I have been the sports editor of The Tribune-Democrat. I spent the previous 15 years covering sports in western Pennsylvania - 13 years at the Observer-Reporter in Washington and two years at the Beaver County Times. My primary focus was high school athletics, but I've also covered Pitt football and basketball, West Virginia football and have even covered the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road a time or two.
