I am a young aspiring college sports writer. I currently attend the University of Findlay and study International Business and Economics, but my heart lies with college basketball. I got my start writing for College Hoops Daily and then got a spot at College Sports Madness. I am hoping to increase my ability and reach more readers.
Although I have been writing almost strictly on the topic of men's college basketball, I have also reached out in an attempt to write on a wider variety of topics. Other writing areas of interest include U.S. Government, International Affairs, Politics, Economics, and Breaking News.
College Hoops Daily
I have been writing for College Hoops Daily since January, 5th, 2017. I have covered numerous different topics writing for this company. After reaching out to owner and main operator of the website, Matt Waskey, he requested I write a sample article. That sample article was so good it went on to get published and featured as the sites top article. Since then I have covered team rankings, awards, the NCAA tournament, Selection Sunday, the Final Four, and individual teams and players. Below are links to all of College Hoops Daily articles in order of publishing date.
Regular Season 2016-2017
My role as a respected, trusted, and factual writer at College Hoops Daily was proven when I was asked to take one of the four regions for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Only four writers from the entire site were asked to take part in what is arguably the most important time of the year for all of college basketball. My analysis of the West Region is below.
College Sports Madness
I started writing out to College Sports Madness January, 23rd, 2017. I was looking to expand my reach as a writer and reached out to senior editor, Joel Welser. He reviewed my articles published up to that point and immediately offered me a role at College Sports Madness. This was an honor considering they offer some nationally recognized college awards. Since I joined the team, I have been writing one article a week as part of a season long series. My series "THIS WEEK IN BIG TEN MEN'S BASKETBALL" has been consistently on the main page as a featured article. Below are links to all of College Sports Madness articles in order of publishing date.

The Blarney Stone
My articles "Postseason Rankings" and "West Region: Sweet Sixteen" were originally posted on College Hoops Daily and were later was pinned by Blarney Stone. I have never actually wrote for Blarney Stone, but it is an example of my writing ability to be featured on the site.
