USF and Colleges Reporter

I'm a fourth-generation Floridian born at St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, which makes me somewhat of a demographic outlier. My family arrived in Zephyrhills before McDonald's, and I've resided there most of my life. When I was a grade-schooler, my passions were sports and creative writing, in that order. Today I'm an old-schooler (don't be dissing on '80s hard rock), and that order has been flipped. I love telling stories, be they about first basemen or first responders. These days, I cover college sports with an emphasis on USF, but I'll dabble in other stuff (Rays, Gasparilla Distance Classic, etc.).
