I'm an avid sports junkie who loves to watch and play sports. I played four years of college baseball as well. As a Chicagoan, I'm a fan of the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Cubs, and Chicago Blackhawks. I enjoy watching college sports, and I am a fan of the Clemson football and basketball teams, Indiana Hoosiers basketball, and DePaul basketball. I am a huge golf fan who has attended several professional events, including the 2012 Ryder Cup, and I am a big fan of Tiger Woods.
I graduated from Trinity International University with a degree in English/Communications. I have experience writing for newspapers and various media outlets, and I worked as a Media Relations Intern for a professional baseball team, the Rockford RiverHawks, in the summer of 2012.
I had a great experience writing for the Bleacher Report Writing Internship Program because I had the opportunity to do what I love to do and grow as a writer in the process. I am looking forward to writing more articles on here in the future.
I currently am employed as the Sports Communications Assistant at Harper College in Palatine, Ill. I also do freelance work for the Daily Herald newspaper.

care for a fan add?
I also see you a golfer. I am a huge golf fan/play a good amount myself. What's the best/favorite course you've ever played?
Hi Will, yes I am new to B/R and just started the internship about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I am liking it so far, it's definitely a different style of writing than what I was used to. I am getting great feedback from editors on how to constantly be improving my writing, and I've really appreciate the help and guidance I'm getting. And thank you, I appreciate the kind words. When did the first internship class ever commence?
Thanks for becoming a fan, William. I see you are relatively new to B/R — how are you liking it so far? By the way, terrific piece on the Irish! They've had quite the season so far, I'm eager to see what else they have up their sleeve. Also, congrats on the sportswriting internship! I actually was in the inaugural internship class and can assure you it's a challenging and rewarding test.
