Sports Editor, St. Mary's   |   Email: jmccray@somdnews.com   |   Phone:


My name is James A. McCray III and I am a sports reporter for Southern Maryland Newspapers, my coverage area mainly based in St. Mary’s County with high school, college and county-based sports and sporting news falling under my umbrella of reporting. A 2007 graduate of Bowie State University, I have won multiple Maryland-Delaware-DC Press Association editorial awards and am a writer who enjoys creatively recapping games and news in my own unique style. I am known as “Trey” to many across the Southern Maryland Athletic Conference high school sports scene, which is a generational nickname. By many others, I typically go by that “Prediction Guy,” which is a title that I wear with humorous distinction. I will never will shy away from a conversation with fans, parents, students, players and supporters and welcome an open dialogue while on the job, so feel free to come up to me for a chat or two. I love writing and I love sports and it just makes sense to combine the two things I love most to make a living. I am always thankful and feel blessed that I am here.
