I am a sports fan, but not a sports reporter! But sometimes, sports fans have to be sports reporters. And so that's what I do! It' s a dream come true for me to be the Sports Director of 1130 the Tiger. Deciding what games and stories we follow on the air is a great deal of fun.

I'm a graduate of Haughton High School, where I lettered three seasons on the baseball team. I'm also a graduate of Northwestern State, where I left my knees on the intramural playing field.
