Sports Reporter

When I interviewed a former New York Times reporter for my high school paper, he said sports reporters “have a license to tour people’s souls.” I was sold. I’ve covered over a dozen sports for the University of Notre Dame’s student newspaper and magazine, as well as the South Bend Tribune. I’m proud of making Muffet McGraw laugh after a 32-point loss. Prouder to have helped investigate the poor living conditions many residents of South Bend public housing endure. Grew up near Danbury, Connecticut. I’ll watch a soccer game anytime, anywhere in the world, but baseball was my first love. I could hit the inside pitch but not much else. Right field was my calling.
