Why do you want to be a journalist?
Because I have found it is something that I'm good at, and I enjoy writing about my interests.
What about sports journalism is particularly enticing to you?
It gives me the opportunity to watch a lot of sports, and give me inside access that the average fan likely would never have.
What journalists or writers do you enjoy reading the most?
Gordon Edes, Kevin Paul DuPont, Dan Shaughnessy, Chris Casper, John U Bacon, and Mike Wilbon.
Do you play any sports?
You’re a Huron High School student, is this chat going to be totally biased toward Huron?
No. From what I understand of the job discription, I will report the facts and not express rooting interest.
