As most people that know me are aware, if I’m passionate about anything, it would have to be sports. Some of my earliest memories from childhood are from Saturdays spent at “The Swamp” (aka where Florida Gators fans spend their Saturdays in the fall) and road trips to Atlanta to cheer on the Braves.
Having spent all 22 years of my life in Jacksonville, Florida one would think that I would have been raised a Jaguars fan but, I credit my undying love of the Philadelphia Eagles to the 1998 Tony Danza classic “The Garbage Picking, Field Goal Kicking, Philadelphia Phenomenon” which tells the story of a garbage man walking on to the Eagles and becoming the starting kicker.
My love of sports has led me to a sports broadcasting degree in which I’ll graduate with this coming fall from The University of North Florida, with my goal being to someday become an ESPN sideline reporter.
