Hello, Bill Riccette here.
I am an Eagles and NFL writer for Bleacher Report. I have been writing freely, for my own pleasure for about 2 years. Started with my own blog called The Fantasy Corral. Later was brought in to write for Dynasty Sports Empire, where I am now a college basketball writer and Bracketologist. Last year, I correctly selected 67/68 teams (only miss was Iona, had Drexel in), 34/68 teams correctly seeded and 57/68 teams seeded within one seed line.
I am currently a student at Penn State Hazleton, majoring in Business Administration. Goal would be to do something in the world of sports with business, but would also love to use Bleacher Report as a springboard for my writing career.
I am a diehard Eagles fan. Loved them since I was about 9, meaning Andy Reid is the only coach I've ever had since I started watching football. Also love all Philadelphia teams (Phillies, Flyers, Sixers).
Also involved heavily with THON at Penn State, the largest student-run philanthropy in the country, raising money for kids with pediatric cancer. All proceeds go to the Four Diamonds Fund and Hershey Medical Center.
Thanks for being a fan, Bill!
