I am an 18 year old college student pursuing my degree in Sports Management to hopefully get a job as a professional scout for an MLB or NFL team or a front-office position to evaluate players and work on contract talks. I am a huge stat nerd and love Baseball and college football and basketball and really all other Detroit sports. I am also a big Michigan State fan! I also love writing and expressing my sports opinions and sports knowledge to others so I am excited to be a part of the Motor City Bengals and Spartan Avenue!

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
