 You can't say The Gazette sports department isn't opinionated.

Columnists Paul Klee and David Ramsey were both named top 10 columnists in the country in 2016 for papers with a circulation of 30,000 to 75,000.

"There is no doubt we have an embarrassment of riches," sports editor Matt Wiley said. "When you have two columnists who are recognized nationally, and then you add Woody Paige to that mix, we can compete with anyone in the country regardless of the circulation size."

Here are five columns from Klee and Ramsey that were submitted to the APSE:
