Here is a set of stories I wrote for print.
- “The 25 Greatest Rivalries of the Past 25 Years” for WWE Magazine - Early in my internship at WWE, I was asked to research some of the best rivalries in sports entertainment history for a potential feature. I returned pages upon pages of history to my editor a few days later. Later that week, he offered me the chance to write up three rivalry profiles, which eventually led into me writing all 25. I was the first intern to write a feature story for the magazine. (This is a large PDF file, so it seems to take a bit to load on Google Docs.)
- “The View From the End of the Bench” for Extra Point Sports Magazine - This story has its roots in a game of beer pong. The main character of the story had just graduated from the University of Pittsburgh a few days beforehand, so the party was a sendoff of sorts for him. He was the 12th man on Pitt’s basketball team, but no one there really seemed to care that he was a Division-I athlete. I wanted to tell his story.
- “4 for Starters at Tournament Time” for CNY Sports Magazine - I got to travel around Central New York, eating bar food for this story. Obviously, it was the most delicious research I have ever done for an article. The PDF is horizontal, so I’d recommend downloading the file and rotating it instead of tilting your head to the side.
- “The LAX Lowdown” for Equal Time Magazine - This clip appeared in the last page of the magazine. It’s a simple compare and contrast between men’s and women’s lacrosse. This PDF is also horizontal.
- “Northwestern aims for first NCAA Tournament bid in school history” for The Daily Orange - I wrote this story as part of my national college basketball beat for The Daily Orange. Northwestern is the only college basketball program in the BCS conferences to never make the NCAA Tournament. That year, the team seemed poised to end that run. This clip looks at how the Wildcats faired at the start of the season.
