As a sports writer for The Oklahoman from January 2000 to July 2007, George Schroeder did an excellent job of keeping readers of The Oklahoman up to date on fortunes of the OU football team. Schroeder moved to Eugene, Ore., in 2007 to work as a columnist for Register-Guard, writing columns on the Oregon Ducks.
His best reporting may be the last few months as he keeps readers informed about his infant son Christopher, who had a heart transplant Jan. 16 at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock. It’s been an emotional roller coaster for the Schroeder family.
Here is his latest installment on Valentine’s Day.
