I'm 22 years old. I have lived in Alabama since I was five and I am an Alabama Crimson Tide fan, though I do my best to be as unbiased as possible, especially because I am getting into the sports talk radio field.
I am currently getting my Associates Degree in Radio/TV Broadcasting. I will probably try to get a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Comm from the University of Alabama later on in my life, but for now, I feel confident. From the people I've talked to, from my college adviser to my boss at WJOX 94.5 FM (where I once interned), I've learned that the level of degree is not a big deal, mainly just that you know what the heck you are doing.
I have a radio show at college on WJSR 91.1 The Edge called "The Hot Seat" with my co-host, Bleacher Report writer, Joe Burgett, who you may know on here. As I mentioned, I used to be an intern at WJOX 94.5 FM for The Opening Drive with Jay Barker, Al Del Greco, and Tony Kurre. It was a great experience and those guys are great to be around.
I'm a huge sports fan. There's not many sports I don't enjoy. I love watching Amercian football, basketball, hockey, baseball, rugby, Australian Rules football, college softball, and bowling. I also will watch Association football, tennis, and golf when I get a chance. Hell, I've started trying to watch cricket and learn about it a little more. So, I guess you can say I'm well-rounded. On here, I'll mostly write about college football because it is the sport I've followed it since I was very young, probably around five or six.
I also love professional wrestling and have been watching since I was around 3 years old. I also have a little experience in the wrestling business, working for some indy shows in Alabama. Granted, the experience is very minimal, but very helpful and insightful nevertheless.
I have worked as a commentator, referee, and manager in shows, most notably getting to work in shows with wrestlers such as Eric Young, Chuck Taylor, and David Young. I would love to get back into the game when I get the chance and have been offered a spot on more than one occasion in an up-and-coming Indy promotion in Northeast Alabama, by the owner who is a friend of mine, but have had to decline due to internship and school related reasons. Hopefully, that door will open up again at some point.
Overall, I'm more of a talker than a writer, an opinion maker more than a newscaster, so it's rare to see me write any kind of news stories, because unfortunately, I don't have any insiders feeding me information. All I can do is look at what's going on around me, and then comment on it. I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
