Growing up in Southern California, I fell in love with sports at a very young age. Los Angeles sports is what shaped my love and passion for the world of sports; through this city’s historic teams and passionate fan base, I developed a strong connection with sports and my teams in LA. I have experienced many incredible sports moments in my life, and as a diehard LA Sports fan I have truly been blessed with many defining moments in sports history. From the Kobe Shaq era of the Lakers, to USC’s dominate run in College Football, to Kobe reviving the LakeShow for back-to-back titles, to the Kings’ improbable run in the NHL, there has been no shortage of excitement in the City of Angels. My passion for LA sports has never dwindled, even as an Oregon State graduate, my love for this city’s teams has grown even stronger along with my love of Beaver athletics.
