Senior sports writer
I grew up in Canton, Mo., a small town in the northeast part of the state. My father was a basketball coach when I was young, so I developed a love for all sports. English was my best subject in school, so I took my love of sports and put it with what I did best and decided to become a sports writer. My wife, Beckie, and I have two beautiful daughters, Lexi (31) and Tori (28), and two beautiful chocolate labs, Jacoby and Willie.
