William Risser


Born 1976, on the Ides of March in Baltimore, Md., and grew up in Garrett Park, Md. Graduated from Walter Johnson High School in 1994 and promptly moved to Palo Alto, Ca. Attended Sonoma State University and graduated in 1999 with a bachelor's in communication. Moved to Washington D.C. shortly after graduation and worked for USA Today News from 2000 to 2008. Covered three presidential elections, the '04 and '08 political conventions, 9/11 and one-year anniversary, Afghanistan and Iraq wars, congress and Hurricane Katrina in that time. Burned out on Washington and politics after four years at USAT's Washington bureau and moved to Mission Beach, Ca., on New Year's 2009 to be with girlfriend Bonnie.
Growing up on the Redskins, Orioles, Capitals, Terps and Bullets I became an avid fan of all sports. Family on the west coast has resulted in becoming a 49ers fan and a berserk San Jose Sharks fan over the years. No matter the sport; from boxing to soccer or Aussie rules football, I enjoy it all. Blunt analysis and shrewd deductions are hallmarks of my commentary.

    How deep do you think the Chargers are?

    This article will test it.

    I really want some Chargers fans input.

    I appreciate it.

    Think you'll like this. It's top ten organizations in the NFL. I spent a good amount of time on this, and you'll like one of the teams on here. Give it a look.

    haha, no problem William. That was a low blow :) about the Ravens. I watched every second of that 23-0 win over the Redskins.

    The Ravens first team offense looked really good (Flacco as good as last year) and I think Troy Smith is a viable option as a backup. For the Redskins, not as good, but being a blind Redskins follower, the preseason doesn't matter right? Only if that were true...
