About

I'm a 26 year old from Fountain Hills, Arizona. I graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2009 and will start Grad School at Arizona State this fall. I have loved sports my entire life and have been writing about them for various websites and blogs for the past few years.

I grew up mainly a basketball player but football has always been my favorite sport. I have been a diehard Washington Redskins fan since I was six years old and no team can match my enthusiasm for them. As far as the NBA goes, I am a Los Angeles Lakers fan all the way. I was born in Los Angeles but grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii.

When I was 10 years old, the Lakers were playing an exhibition game against the Nuggets at the University of Hawaii's stadium. A friend of mine had courtside tickets and before the game I got to say hi to Shaq (the largest human being I have ever seen in person). The true highlight though was watching a 17 year old rookie by the name of Kobe Bryant run wind-sprints in front of me. As he got to my sideline I stuck out my hand and he gave me a high-five before heading back to the other end. From then on, Kobe was my guy.

Sports have given me so much in life, from friends, to self-confidence, to a way to spend my summers as an only child. I love and follow all sports and find that beyond the games played there is much more that we can learn from them.

    Brad, give me a call on my cell (410) 456-5918. I was a very close friend of your Dad in high school in Maryland way back in 1957-1959. Let's talk.
