Guest puzzle this week by Adesina O. Koiki, longtime friend of the AVCX. We started talking about this concept (the puzzle is a 17x17 called "Relocation" at 3.5/5 difficulty) a few years ago. Different era! What a delight to run Adesina's work -- enjoy this one and look for his byline.
Adesina has blogged regularly for the legendary Diary of a Crossword Fiend for close to seven years, along with being the founder of the sports website A Lot of Sports Talk and the associate director of the 4th and 1 Football Camp in Mt. Pleasant, TX, for a time the only camp in North America to combine football training with standardized test prep and life skills classes.
