USF 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.).

  1. Tulane wide receiver Jalen McCleskey runs in front of Houston cornerback Damarion Williams (6) on the way to the go-ahead touchdown during the final minute of Thursday's 38-31 Tulane win.
    But the Green Wave’s win ranks as one of the league’s top five endings ever.
  2. USF guard David Collins (0) looks to pass against East Carolina during the second half at the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida on Sunday, February 10, 2019.
    The Bulls’ 2019-20 American Athletic Conference slate was released Friday
  3. USF senior Evelyne Viens (14) already is the program's career goals leader.
    The Canada native already owns the program record for goals scored with 56.
  4. USF guard Enna Pehadzic (0), USF center Shae Leverett (21) and Houston guard Julia Blackshell-Fair (33) battle for A loose ball at the Yuengling Center last season.
    The Bulls also have an afternoon home game the same day as the Gasparilla parade.
  5. Florida State coach Willie Taggart reacts during the first half against Boise State in Tallahassee on Aug. 31.
    New quarterbacks and coordinators might explain the conference’s struggles at the outset of 2019.
  6. USF quarterback Jordan McCloud (12) runs against Georgia Tech during the second half of a Sept. 7 game.
    Additionally, quarterback Jordan McCloud makes the AAC weekly honor roll.
  7. USF redshirt freshman Jordan McCloud warms up before Saturday night's game against South Carolina State. McCloud totaled five touchdowns in the Bulls' 55-16 triumph. SCOTT PURKS | Special to the Times]
    The redshirt freshman’s five total touchdowns were the most by a Bulls first-time starter
  8. Relentless pressure caused this first-half fumble; No. 20 Bentlee Sanders knocking it free with No. 4 Greg Reaves ready to pounce. USF recovered, then scored a touchdown just a few plays later against visiting South Carolina State.
    At least one unit still has some serious shortcomings entering conference play.
  9. Not perfect, but not too bad for USF quarterback Jordan McCloud in his first college start.
    The redshirt freshman quarterback totals five touchdowns in his starting debut as the Bulls beat South Carolina State 55-16.
  10. Warming up before the game Saturday night, USF redshirt freshman Jordan McCloud, a Plant High alum, got his first start as a college quarterback.
    The former Panther gets the nod over Blake Barnett against South Carolina State.
