Reelin’ in the Years

Hubert Mizell is a big-league sports columnist. He's been just about everywhere, and covered just about every major sporting event. For more than three decades, Hubert has taken our readers along for a marvelous ride. We know they will miss him. So will we.
We hope you enjoy this look back at a remarkable career. It represents a large chapter in the growth of Tampa Bay as a big-league area, and in the life of a newspaper that started building a nationally recognized sports section around a Florida boy who loved his job.
Paul Tash, Times Editor and President
