To the readers of the Waxahachie Daily Light and the Midlothian Mirror, I have made a decision to change my byline that has been used over the last year due to personal reasons connected to my estranged father. I first approached staff and management with the request and have their support.

I apologize for any confusion this may cause over the next few weeks, but hope the community can understand the reasons for making this change.

If there are questions concerning the change, please call the WDL Sports Desk at 469-517-1456.

*Editor's note: The Waxahachie Daily Light editorial team fully supports Marcus in this alteration. Outside of a few weeks of adjustment, we do not believe it will be an issue. We ask the community to do the same. Thank you.
