Why I Love Sports: I grew up in Cleveland. Being a sports follower became part of who I am the second I was born and my passion has grown so much that I want to cover it for the rest of my life. Growing up in a sports town that has stuck with its teams no matter what has served as an inspiration to me.

Why I Love Sports: I grew up with sports. I started watching the Mets when I was a toddler and I've had Jets season tickets since I was young. I started watching the Nets when the made the finals two years in a row behind Jason Kidd. I also have always loved playing sports, especially baseball and basketball but I was too small for football. Watching and attending games has not only been a hobby of mine, but a pastime. I love talking sports because growing up as a Mets and Jets fan, I had to defend my teams against the Yankees and Giants fans.
Favorite Sport: Baseball
Favorite Teams: Mets, Jets, Nets

Major:
Journalism and Public Relations
Why I Love Sports: When I was a kid I would always mute the TV when I played sports video games, and I would do my own play-by-play. I attended a summer sports broadcasting camp in Boston for two years in high school. It was there that I realized sports broadcasting is what I wanted to do for a living. 
Favorite Sport: Baseball

Major:
  Communications
Why I Love Sports: I grew up watching sports with my family as my whole family would watch Yankee games together. In 2009 when the new stadium opened, that's when I fell in love with sports and baseball. Being in the company of fans who loved going to games, and hearing their stories of past games they went too and games they remembered watching, made me fall in love with sports. After that game in 2009, I started watching the Yankees on a regular basis and my love for baseball and sports kept growing from there.
Favorite Sport: Baseball
Favorite Team: New York Yankees
