Originally from NY, I currently reside in Charlotte, NC. Sports has always been my life and that is not changing anytime soon. Scouting guru for the NFL and NBA. Passionate about the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, New York Jets, New York Yankees and New York Rangers. Big-time SU and NCSU fan on the collegiate level. Seattle Sounders for my soccer fix and Charlotte Hounds for MLL. /end Sports Nerd Rant.
Sports has always made more sense to me than people. The meritocracy of the landscape speaks to a truth rarely seen in life, how could I not fall in love with that? Carolina Panthers, UNC Tar Heels, Charlotte Hornets get all my love. A product of the capital city of Raleigh.
I'm the proud father of two beautiful girls, but if they don't grow up to marry football fans I failed somewhere along the line. I love the NFL in a totally normal obsessive way, but my blood runs blue and black. I am a Panthers fan who takes pride in his team and win or lose they never fail to make me proud. I have seen them overcome the odds plenty of times over the years and I believe we will win every Sunday no matter what those odds are. Looking forward to another great season in 2014 and a future beyond that shines bright for the Carolina Panthers.
Currently a resident of Richmond, VA, but Charlotte will always be my true home. I was a fanatic before I became an analyst. I always trust my eyes over the stats.
Passionate sports fan since birth in White Plains, New York. Moved to Connecticut when I was young and move to North Carolina in high school. Currently the sports editor of UNCG's Carolinian as well as a published poet. Favorite teams are the New York Giants, the Los Angeles Lakers, the New York Yankees, and the UConn Huskies.
I am a simple man with many hobbies: God, my lovely girlfriend, my two dogs, videogaming, working out, gardening, and the Carolina Panthers. I breath Panther football and want to share my love for the sport and the team. Hopefully I keep the readers intrigued and maybe, just maybe, convert a few followers into fans. Keep Pounding Panther Nation.
A writer ever since 2nd grade, I've always found an interest in the written craft creatively. It wasn't until right before college that I discovered a love for a journalistic approach. My passion for film, gaming, and sports has led me to writing positions with various sites. With hard work and a unique voice, I hope to become a household name and continue to do what I love. Thanks for reading.
I am a senior at UNC Chapel Hill and have been a devoted Panthers fan since their inception in 1995. I love everything about this fan base and still cannot believe I get to write for you all.
