My name is Jonathan Coltogirone, I am 19 years old and a sophomore at the University of Pittsburgh. I am majoring in English Writing and focusing in the nonfiction genre. As a fourth grader, I started watching Pittsburgh Panthers basketball.
As Brandin Knight and Julius Page dominated the competition on the newly built Petersen Events Center floor, my love for sports and desire to work in the field as an adult grew rapidly. Since then I've had my allegiances in almost every respective sport. Pitt still holds my heart when it comes to college athletics. The Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates are the hometown teams and also my favorites by far. My love for the NBA used to be found in Philadelphia and Allen Iverson, but since his retirement I've only been a casual fan.
I've made these games my life and more recently my "occupation". I have been accepted in to Bleacher Report's Sports Writing Internship, but won't be writing in that regard until the Fall. For now, I'm just starting to get a feel for the website and its format while also improving my writing ability.
