My Bleacher Report career began in summer 2013, when I completed the B/R Training Program while covering the Oakland Athletics, San Francisco Giants, Sacramento Kings and English Premier League soccer. I've been writing for B/R ever since completing the program while simultaneously working for Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo’s student newspaper, Mustang News. I was the lead staff writer for Mustang News, then the news editor. I'll be back as the Managing Editor for News and Sports next year after completing an internship with the Sacramento Bee, but I'll continue writing for Bleacher Report throughout that time.

    I really appreciate that you chose The King over Dale. Too many people glorify Dale in their minds, but when it comes down to it, nobody will ever get 200 wins again... Or even close for that matter.

    Thanks for becoming a fan, Benjy! I'm glad to see you're enjoying B/R so far and wish you the best of luck in the sports media internship. I was actually a part of the internship in it's inaugural class back in the summer of 2010. It was as challenging as it was rewarding. My best advice is to use your internship coordinators as soundboards for questions, story ideas and constructive criticism. If you have any questions going forward or suggestions about ways to improve B/R, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks again.
