My love for sports started with America’s pastime, baseball. Growing up in Memphis, TN, my dad got me involved in baseball at an early age. When I first began to play my new found favorite sport, I wore the number 24 in honor of my all-time favorite player, Ken Griffey Jr. I later changed my number to 25 to make a name for myself. Throughout the years, my love for all sports has grown tremendously. From hockey to football, it didn’t matter what type of sport I was watching, I was always intrigued.
High school is where I discovered my ability to write. Any type of paper, story or article, it always came easy to me. With my passion for sports and my then found skill in writing, I combined the two which has led me to the field of journalism.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism at the University of Mississippi where I wrote for the university’s newspaper, the Daily Mississippian. I am currently a reporter at the Garden City Telegram where I cover the Law Enforcement Beat and General Assignment. Also, I am a staff writer for ramblinfan.com, a sports network that is a part of Sports Illustrated that dishes out non-stop sports news and views on your favorite teams and topics. My area of focus is the St. Louis Rams, who is ironically my favorite football team.
Besides writing, I also have experience in broadcast. I am a contributing reporter to Ole Miss’ network, NewsWatch as well as hard news and feature packages for various classes. Be sure to view my Resume and Broadcast Package page.
I just want to succeed in the field where I have developed an immeasurable love and passion. Like all sons and daughters, I want to make my parents proud.
