About

Hey guys, my name is John. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Connecticut studying math education. I've always had a passion for Sports Journalism so that's why I'm here. I live on Long Island, NY and am a Yankee fan despite my parent's being Sox and Mets fans. For some reason I'm also a Denver Broncos fan. I've been since 1996 so I've been a fan before they won their first Super Bowl. Obviously, a Huskies fan too! Hopefully we'll bring a National Championship to Storrs this year.

As for athletics, I started playing baseball and soccer when I was little. After a couple years it was all baseball for me. I played 2B mostly but moved wherever my coach needed me. I could field any position better than anyone else in the league but I couldn't hit the damn ball. I was also perhaps the only kid traded in Little League. My travel coach needed to have me on his team apparently.

When I got to junior high, I started running cross-country and track. When I realized I was pretty decent at that, I stayed with it. During my senior year in high school, I was named All-County in each of the 3 running seasons (cross-country, winter track, spring track.) By the time I graduated my times were: 9:54 in the 3200 (2 miles), 4:40 in the 1600 (1 mile), 2:07 in the 800 (1/2 mile). I ran on and off during sophomore and junior year with a broken foot so my times never improved really until senior year. I don't run at the collegiate level because of that broken foot, but I still try to run when I get the chance. My goal is to run a marathon in the next year or so.

    Hi , did you see the NY sports page on BR? it is not doing to well. it only has 4 fans, i think we should make it better and take the page under are wing, its time to for us to represent NY and show the world what this great place is all about. I asked Angel Navedo to be the community leader, we will see what he says. Are you in ?

    John,

    When you think of the ultimate football player, who do you think of?I think of one guy. I think of Larry Fitzgerald. Let me know what you think.
