Keeping it Heel is continuing it’s efforts to expand it’s staff.  We have recently added 4 writers to our staff and there are still spots available on keeping it heel.  While we are open to all types of Tar Heel writers and are in immediate need of writers to specialize in baseball, soccer or hockey ,we will also be in need of a lead or senior writer in the near future for those sports as well.  We are still open to basketball and football writers for the right candidates.  We are especially seeking University of North Carolina current students as well as alumni to add to our staff.

While this is primarily a sports site we would like to add a special campus corespondent to the team to report on all things around campus in UNC.  Any student photographers that want to see their pictures of around campus and especially at sporting events on the web?  Keeping it Heel is looking for a campus photographer to submit photos for the sites features section and to be used in author posts.  Hop the campus bars at UNC?  We are looking for someone to contribute to a new Tar Heel Bars feature that will have reviews of each UNC bar on campus, this could be a regular thing or a 1 time series depending on the candidate.

Here at  Keeping It Heel  we do our very best to bring you the very best UNC coverage on the net!

Part of the mission of the FanSided  Network, is to encourage our community of readers to share their opinions and thoughts on their favorite teams. Our writers don’t hold back and we don’t expect our readers to either. We want to give you the best coverage and opinions on your favorite team from the fan perspective that is so often missing from traditional sports media. We believe sports coverage doesn’t have to be dry, boring and without opinion.

Keeping it Heel  is the newest site on the FanSided Network  and we are expanding our staff here at Keeping it Heel to give you more content and a broader perspective! We are currently accepting applications for contributing writers.
