I grew up in Southern California and developed a love for all sports at a young age, though I ultimately decided on golf when it came to playing something at a competitive level. But as far as watching sports, college football reigns supreme. I attended my first game as 5-year-old when visiting family in Florida. Michigan defeated Alabama in overtime to win the Orange Bowl, and the winning quarterback just happened to be a senior by the name of Tom Brady. I attended plenty of USC games with my dad during the Pete Carroll era, only furthering my love for the game. Since then, I’ve been blessed to attend and cover games at some awesome venues including Oklahoma, LSU, AT&T Stadium, and more than I can count at TCU. Beyond college sports, I love cheering on the San Francisco Giants and 49ers, and exploring new places when afforded the opportunity.
