I've got two hometowns: Sioux Falls, SD and Columbus, OH. After spending a couple years of my youth in Ohio, my family moved to Sioux Falls where I attended and graduated from Sioux Falls Christian. There, I played a little football and baseball (1B/3B/P). The next chapter of my life took me an hour southeast of Sioux Falls to Dordt College in Sioux Center, IA. At Dordt, I write sports for the school paper, edit the sports section, broadcast multiple sports (soccer, basketball, hockey, baseball and softball), work at the campus radio station (KDCR 88.5 FM), and I enjoyed a spell covering high school football and basketball at the N'West Iowa Review. When I'm not writing, I'm watching my Northeast Ohio and Buckeye brethren or playing intramural softball. I appreciate you reading and listening.
