I am the biggest sports fan on the face of the Earth and football is my deepest passion. I love the Green Bay Packers and in general love football. I used the skills I learned through my training as a historian to study historical trends relating to the NFL, which helps me provide in-depth analysis and insight on the most important sports stories of the day! I also have a beautiful family, that includes my fiance Emily as well as my son David, who while still just 7 months old is being groomed to be the world's number one Packers fan!
My sports writing career began in 2004 when I started covering local high school and college sports in Havre, Montana for the Havre Daily News At the HDN, I covered football, basketball, golf, hockey, baseball, track and wrestling. I covered numerous state championships in basketball as well as many high school playoff games. After a few years writing there, I became tired of writing about local sports and went on to pursue my degree in history.
I always knew I wanted to be a sports writer, so it may seem odd that I chose to pursue a history degree instead of journalism. However, sports writers are the historians of sport. We are the ones who chronicle and document everything to do with sports, so in my eyes why not learn to be a historian. Being trained as a professional historian has not only taught me how to research and write, it taught me how to analyze and perform quantitative and qualitative research, as well as studying historical trends to help predict the future.
In addition to writing for the B/R, I also am the publisher and owner of fantasyppr.com, A NFL News and Fantasy Football information site, dedicated to giving strategic advice to Fantasy Players in PPR Leagues. I am an expert Fantasy Player and won championships in five of nine leagues I participated in last season.
I am very excited to be writing for the B/R and hope to interact with every sports fan on this site, cause the bottom line about me is that I LOVE sports!! and am all about talking some ball, anywhere, anytime, anyplace.
Chis, I hope you start writing again, you have been missed. You are an awesome Journalist
Chris...I'm so sorry it took me awhile to get back to you. Things are crazy around this place sometimes haha.
To do the block quote in the future, all you have to do is highlight the quote you want to format as such. Then click the quotation marks button on your toolbar, and that will take care of it. Just remember that this can only be done if the quote is three lines or longer in the text box per B/R standards.
Hope that helps. If you have questions about that or anything else with your articles, feel free to ask. I will answer!
Just read this on packernews.com. Was posted yesterday. It's crazy how we were just talking about this lol
Comment From Spencer Szy
Everyone seems to be worried about Perry switching and playing OLB forcing him to play some coverage. I'm just curious as to how well Kampman played that first year. Didn't he play fine and wouldn't perrys switch be a little easier?
Not really. He was OK rushing the passer. He had 3.5 sacks in nine games before he blew out his knee, but he wasn't comfortable in coverage, which was why he left to go to a 4-3 team.
No one is touching that record!
I just finished up with the Packers slideshow a couple of minutes ago, so you should be able to see the full revisions and feedback now. Let me know if you can't.
Welcome to BR Chris! Let me know if you ever have any questions.
