                    Denton Record-Chronicle

Steve Gamel has been dedicated to covering high school sports for
the past 24 years. He got his big break while in college when he was
offered a job with the Lewisville News, and his first assignment was to
be the beat reporter for the Flower Mound Marcus football team. The
Marauders proceeded to go on a magical run to win a Class 5A state title
at the Houston Astrodome, and Steve was forever hooked on what he
believed was the greatest job in the world. More than two decades later,
he still feels that way and has had the good fortune of covering some of
the best teams and athletes in the state across all sports in boys and girls
athletics. His career includes stints at the Dallas Morning News, Allen
Publishing, and, currently, the Denton Record-Chronicle. He has worked
for the Denton Record-Chronicle as both a freelance and full-time

Steve believes in being a friendly, honest, and trustworthy journalist who
goes about his job the right way and with class. He also believes his job
description goes beyond keeping track of touchdowns, buzzer-beating
3-pointers, and hat tricks. He is known to many as “Newspaper Steve,”
and he’s worked tirelessly over the years to build genuine relationships
with coaches, players, parents, fans, loyal readers, and hundreds upon
hundreds of fellow sportswriters from around the state.

Originally from Houston, Texas, Steve moved to Denton in 1996 and
later earned his degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of
North Texas. When he’s not covering sports, Steve enjoys spending time
with his family. He and his wife, Leslie, have been married for 16 years
and have two boys: Christian (14) and Jackson (9). He has also owned
