Columnist, Sr
My Role

Orlando Sentinel sports columnist
My Biography

Have been a sports columnist at the Orlando Sentinel since 2000. I came to Orlando the same year as Grant Hill. The only difference is Hill missed hundreds of games due to an ankle injury. I have never missed a column, even when I injured my typing hand when I bludgeoned fellow Sentinel columnists Mike Thomas and Scott Maxwell during the arena debate. I've spent my entire career in the State of Florida. I try not to take myself too seriously. My motto is: "Doctors bury their mistakes. Sports columnists only print theirs."
My Interests

Spending time with Urban Meyer's family.
