I am a sophomore sports writer at Ottawa University (KS), with a 3.4 GPA, that plays for the football team as well. I currently write for the campus newspaper as a Managing Editor, but have also worked as a staff writer and Sports Editor. I have also had a political editorial go in the local newspaper, the Ottawa Herald. Got third place in sports column writing in a Kansas Collegiate Press conference my freshman year. I've also worked on the radio staff, as well as working with the campus marketing/networking group, Braves TV. In high school, I was a staff writer for my high school newspaper my senior year at Piper High School, and earned some recognition as a cartoonist. At the same time, I wrote weekly columns during the football season for a local newspaper. All in all, I'm just trying to get better at everything I do, writing especially, and I feel I'm just scratching the surface of what I am able to do. I love sports, and writing about it, so hopefully writing for the bleacher report will help me get better.
