About

Hey everybody! My name is Jared, and I am a student at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana. I am currently studying convergent journalism, with the hopes of making it in the world of sports media after my graduation in the spring of 2015.
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!

Experience:
2012-13- Staff Writer for The Sojourn (Indiana Wesleyan University's award-winning campus newspaper)
May-August 2013- Completed Bleacher Report's Advanced Program in Sports Media
2013-14- Sports Editor for The Sojourn
May 2014-Present- B/R's Featured Columnist for the Atlanta Hawks
2014-15- Co-Editor-in-Chief for The Sojourn
January 2015-Present- NBA Writer at Today's Fastbreak
March 2015-Present- Writer at Project Spurs
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.

    He´s the Kind of guy you want to have on your side, but if he´s in another Team, you hate him.

    Haha, just saw, you´re a Spurs Fan ;-)
    I´m a Die Hard Dallas Fan... But maybe because I´m german and too far away, this is the reason why I´m no hater on the Spurs.
    Obviously one of the best, if not, THE best run Organisation in sports....

    He'd be instant offense and he'd play some PG.

    Kirilenko could be a good pickup.

    Should they trade Mack for a pick or a low risk high reward asset like Austin Rivers?

    It was so refreshing to see Mack and Moose on the floor today.
