#TBT to QB Graham Harrell

Graham HarrellThere’s something quite special about the football program at Texas Tech. It’s known as “Quarterback U” because of the amount of quality QB’s coming through the system, and I had the privilege of covering the team for a season back in 2004. I was Graham Harrell’s first college interview when he entered his freshman year at Texas Tech, and was so proud that he went on to play in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers. Now he’s being included in a documentary about the Quarterbacks of TTU. Here is a link to my article, which includes some ironic foreshadowing! The Young Guns>>>

Looks for these two guys in the next issue of Sports Spectrum Magazine: Padres’ Ian Kennedy and Nationals’ Ian Desmond. We’re heading into the dog days of summer, sports fans. What better time to head to the ballpark! Go Pads. Go Nats.

Tim Tebow Prom


With the “Disney” gals!

I volunteered as the event writer at one of Tim Tebow’s special needs proms that took place across the US and overseas this past Valentine’s Day weekend. What a fun night getting twirled on the dance floor, enjoying hugs from these sweet kiddos, and stopping by the “Disney” photo booth! My pre-event tweet made the news (random?!) http://www.inquisitr.com/1771462/want-to-know-how-football-hottie-tim-tebow-is-spending-valentines-day/ Here is the short little piece I wrote for them to use:  http://www.crossroadschurch.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/A-Night-to-Shine.pdf

I’m humbled that someone would ask to do a story on my sportswriting career. This month marks 10 years! My mom, a spelling bee champ in her tiny East Texas hometown, had to quit college to raise us three kids. She taught me how to read and write, and has always been there for a late night call when I was stuck on an article. This is for you, mom! Thank you for everything!  #IAmARedRaider
