I grew up in St. Louis, Mo., where I quickly found and developed a passion for the St. Louis Cardinals. My family moved to Saginaw, Mich., prior to my eighth grade year, and I have resided in Michigan ever since.
I am in my senior year at Hope College in Holland, Mich. I am a communication major and English minor.
I have worked as sports editor of my college's student-run paper, The Anchor, and am currently on duty as co-editor-in-chief for the 2013-14 campaign. I also run cross country and track at Hope, an NCAA Division III school.
While I am a runner myself, I am also a huge fan of the sport (cross country, track and field, road racing, ultrarunning) and follow running on a daily basis.
I like to instill a positive atmosphere wherever I go. I like to be joyful, and sports bring me loads of joy.
Hey James, Thank you for the kind words on Clowney. I felt pretty good about it and it was nice to have some reassurance. Appreciate you looking it over and all the best!
Thanks for the edits and kind words James. Much appreciated.
Thanks for the edits, James. I really appreciate it. And thanks for catching that "Saints" typo!
Thanks for the Broncos edits, James, and sorry for the frequent typos. As for the game changer part, should I put a hyphen even if it's not modifying a noun? I'm not exactly sure about when to use a hyphen with the compound adjectives.
Thanks for the edits on that 49ers piece, James! Much appreciated. Thanks for the feedback, too! Have a great holiday.
Thanks again for another great edit, James. I don't know that the Indians will be doing much of anything until the offseason at this point. The division looks to be completely out of reach with the way the Tigers are playing, and they'll be hard pressed to catch the teams ahead of them in the Wild Card..
The Royals have charged ahead of them too, so the postseason outlook in Cleveland is pretty bleak at this point.
Thanks for the edits today James. Much appreciated. I'll be on the lookout for those hyphens next time.
Thanks for the edits, James! I didn't hyphenate "off-balance" because it wasn't modifying a noun, but I guess it should be hyphenated either way. Thanks again!
Thanks for the edit James, little rusty on some of that stuff so thanks!
Hey James, thanks for another good edit on my Indians piece. Much appreciated.
