My Role

Best gig imaginable for an arrested-development sports fan, commenting on our games and the people who play them.
My Biography

The Daily Press has been my newspaper home since 1984 after previous stops in Fayetteville, N.C., Lynchburg, Va., and Ocean City, Md. I grew up in Baltimore, graduated from James Madison University in 1981 and still type with two fingers. My wife, Jill, is the family's most accomplished athlete and astute sports observer.

My Interests

Family, movies, books, music, sports, politics.
