I am a junior at The Pennsylvania State University expecting to graduate in 2015 with a degree in Print Journalism, along with minors in Business and History.

At Penn State, I am sports staff writer at The Daily Collegian, an independent, student-run newspaper. I'm currently covering Penn State men's basketball and baseball. In my first year, I worked as a beat writer for Penn State men's soccer, softball, women's gymnastics, and women's rugby.

I am a Philadelphia Eagles Featured Columnist at Bleacher Report. Previously, I covered the Penn State football team in 2012 as a Featured Columnist. I am also a product of the Bleacher Report Writer's Program.

    You may only be a sophomore still in school but you're the first journalist I've seen with the courage to speak against the honeymoon affect for BOB and be honest about the coach and his staff being grossly outcoached at halftime. Without improvement in this area we will continue to operate with win/loss mediocrity and continue to lose in situations that we have the ability to win but have failed to make the necessary adjustments against a quality opponent.

    Hey John , why all the "hatred" towards Ben Turk ? Diaco said Turk had a "great" game and the last punt was a "throw-away"...hmmm , you might wanna rethink your "self-opinionated" critique of Turk's game because his coach is saying the exact opposite of what your saying.
