Paul Tenorio
Reporter I
My Role

Paul Tenorio is the Orlando Sentinel's UCF beat reporter, covering Knights athletics and managing the Knights Notepad blog.
My Biography

Born and raised in Alexandria, Va, Paul Tenorio ventured to the Midwest for college, where he attended Northwestern University (go Cats!) and graduated from the Medill School of Journalism.

Tenorio promptly returned home to work for The Washington Post, where he spent five years covering high school sports and assisting on coverage with the Redskins and soccer. He joined the Sentinel in September 2012 to cover college athletics and jumped right in mid-season on the UCF beat.
My Interests

A former soccer player, Tenorio loves all things soccer -- including but not limited to the EPL, La Liga, Serie A, MLS and international futbol. Down for any pick-up games.

Also enjoys a good book (fiction or non-fiction), deadlines, hacking away at his handicap and visits to his old haunt, the Tune Inn, on Capitol Hill.
