Spent nearly a half-dozen years as an award-winning sports editor at The (Alcoa-Maryville) Daily Times, then 8 years of good luck & similar work for Rivals/VolQuest/Yahoo!. Branched out along the way to add some tv & radio, the latter of which fits my image & voice. Co-host of ‘The Nation’ w/ ESPN’s Chris Low for 9 years, & IMG sideline reporter for more than two years. Fortunate & very happy free-agent writer at the moment, though I’ve got a couple of daily options that have been presented as well as some big-picture items on anonymous sources, their names, the importance of the Freedom of Information Act to collegiate sports reporting & more. Enough flaws to fill a gallon jug; would rather carry a grudge than a loaf of bread. If you’re loyal to me, I’m royal to you.
