I'm like any other sports writer. At one point in my athletic career, I realized I wasn't good enough to make it pro. So naturally the next best thing would be to follow sports for a living. I was a journalism major at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and now work for The Journal & Topics Newspapers in Des Plaines, Illinois. I am part of a two-man team covering 16 local high schools and their athletic programs. Among the notable athletes I have interacted with on the job are Reds infielder Adam Rosales, Redwings defenseman Brett Lebda, Chicago Cubs third base coach Mike Quade, Cubs shortstop Ryan Theriot and Orioles pitcher Rich Hill
