All Journal News/lohud.com sports reporters had a weekly column during the 2015-16 school year. Since then, columns have been more sporadic.
The majority of my columns were geared towards pointing out flaws in certain systems and either offering a solution to the problem or drawing attention to the fact that certain flaws do exist.
I’ve never been shy about tackling a difficult subject or giving a strong take on a touchy subject that might rub some people the wrong way, so long as I feel there is evidence to support my stance.
My objective is to find stories that will make the reader think, talk, laugh, smile, or any combination of the aforementioned.
