Gator Sign

the ultimate sports fan

I'm not sure how I got into sports, but it has become a big part of my life. I watch ESPN almost religiously and I have the biggest crush on SportsCenter anchor Josh Elliot. Almost any sport can catch my attention and I'm a fan of just about any team. When it comes to pretty much any athletic event, I'm cheering and yelling at refs just like the guys.

I began watching sports at an early age when my dad would take me to Florida Panthers games as a kid. Although the Panthers and I have parted since then, I am still an avid Miami team fan. My family has season tickets to the Miami Heat, so I've been a fan since Alonso Mourning and Brian Grant were playing. I was there for Dwayne Wade's rookie year! But enough about my beloved Heat...

My love for sports has led me to study Sports Broadcasting and make a career out of it. I work at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and the O'Connell Center at UF with the in-house camera crew for games. I also volunteer at WRUF Sports Radio 850 on campus. Hopefully all this work will get me a great job. My dream is to one day anchor SportsCenter on ESPN.

I think Basketball is the sport I know best, so I've made a list of players who always provide highlight worthy games:

Blake Griffin
- Power Forward, LA Clippers
- BG is definitely one of the best players when it comes to dunks.
Dwayne Wade
- Small Guard, Miami Heat
- D Wade always manages to score big for his team.
Ray Allen
- Small Guard, Boston Celtics
- A seasoned veteran, Ray Ray can it those buzzer-beating, game winning-shots with ease.
