My name is Luke. I like to opine on matters regarding mainly Detroit sports, especially the Detroit Tigers, which I take a serial interest in. In particular, I'm interested in the development of minor leaguers and draft philosophy, especially as it relates to pitching prospects. I tend to favor more hard throwing pitchers in the higher rounds of the draft, as opposed to drafting position players, for example. Other interests of mine include being a fan of the Detroit Lions (oh the horror!), Red Wings, and a fan of the Portland Trailblazers (who I became enamored with during the Arvydas Sabonis years). I've also managed to gain an affinity to the LA Dodgers, mainly because of following the Single-A Great Lakes Loons.
Outside of my interest in sports, I'm attending Michigan Technological University in Houghton, MI (located about as far away from Detroit as it is with Saint Louis, MO) with an intent to major in Civil Engineering. I can be fairly opinionated on interests related to sports, amongst other topics, but I feel that my opinions are grounded in logic and will contribute nicely to Bleacher Report.
A Look at the Lions' QBs and RBs
I'm flattered that I'm your first fan , Luke. Good luck on Bleacher Report. Write from your heart and practice, practice, practice. All my best, Todd
