About

Hey everybody! My name is Jared, and I am a recent graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana with a major in convergent journalism.
Obviously, I like sports, but basketball, football and track and field are my favorites to both watch and participate in. My favorite professional team is and always will be the San Antonio Spurs, but I also root for the Atlanta Hawks, Indianapolis Colts, and Cincinnati Reds.
I am always up for a good sports discussion, so don't hesitate to start up a conversation!

March 2015-Present- Writer at Project Spurs
June 2015-Present: Part-Time Writer for B/R's Breaking News Team
In addition to these positions, I have taken numerous college courses in journalism and media communication. I have often used my coursework to focus on sports-related topics and hone my sports journalism craft.

    I don't understand why the Hawks didn't get Glenn Robinson III for at least a training camp deal...

    A lot like Carroll actually. Great on defense, but not much offense.

    I hope we opt for GRIII

    What do you think of Lance Thomas? Apparently he's linked with the Hawks?

    I agree with you on Splitter. If it came to the worst, Hardaway is still a "good" shooter, and the Triangle didn't fit his playing style. For Holiday, I think it's a good signing. He knows how to be a champion. I do think Holiday, if he gets 15-20 mins a game, would average 7 points.

    The Hawks waived Austin Daye to clear cap space...anything up Bud's sleeve?

    Hey Jared. This is still Atlanta Hawks Fan.

    Do you like the Hawks O-S so far. I don't mind losing Carroll since we have Baze, Sef, and THJ.
