I was born into the college football-crazed state of Tennessee in 1998, the same year that the University of Tennessee won their only football national championship of the last fifty years. Thanks to my alum father, I grew up a proud Vols fan. But right when I really started caring, Tennessee began their decade of ineptitude, and that pretty much sums up my sports fan career. The teams I really care about are doomed to let me down. I’m hoping to not bring that same bad luck to Stanford, the school from which I will hopefully graduate in 2021. Still, the innate Tennessee passion for college football runs through my veins. I’ll bring that same passion to all my Stanford coverage, something I have some good practice with thanks to my work with the Stanford Daily. When I’m not binge watching the greatest sport on earth, I love to run and plan on majoring in History.
