Sports have always been a metaphor for my life. After playing baseball through high school and two years of junior college (Tri-C; Cleveland, OH), I know, love, and appreciate what student athletes go through on a daily basis. As a born and raised Clevelander, and current Chicago resident, I am also familiar with loyalty and passion, and THAT is what families have for their student athlete at home. At NCSA, my job is in our company name, which is working with NCSA. It is my joy and passion to provide an unbeatable level of service to student athletes, and their families, on their journey to the collegiate level. Whether it’s playing, covering games as a sports journalist, or simply being a fan, my time spent around college athletics has been invaluable. Now, I’m looking forward to sharing in all of your experiences as well.
