Armchair Reporter

Don’t freak out, don’t stop now. You’re only Twenty-something.”

I stared blankly in the mirror in the morning before work, talking to myself and trying to lift my spirits. I don’t know if I believed the words I said. I tried.

And now, rest.

I feel a weird sense of emptiness in my stomach.

On Friday night, both Blue Ridge baseball and Byrnes softball lost. Those losses ended the seasons for those two teams. Those two teams were the last two left standing in the Greer area—the last two teams left for me to cover.

The season, for me at least, is over.

A little bit of respect

Compared to others, I’m still a relative rookie at this job. 

I’m 14 months into this role as a high school sports reporter. It’s been great. In my time doing this, however, I’ve realized two things.

Big fish, small pond

Everyone needs a good humbling sometimes.

On Tuesday nights at my church, I attend young adult service as often as possible. After we finish service, a group of us breaks off downstairs to the basketball court. We shoot around and run some 3-on-3 games.

Raising Canes

One of my earliest memories is from the summer of 2006.

I was a young child, just having finished first grade. A sports fanatic from a young age, I found myself with little to watch in the summer.

Up the Villa!

It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of football.

American football, yes. Equally so, however, I love the original game of football. The beautiful game. The sport we Americans call “soccer.”

Jealousy, jealousy

Caitlin Clark.

For my money, she’s more entertaining than any men’s college basketball player I’ve watched in a long time. I’m sure many would agree.

I haven’t made a point to take in many non-March Madness men’s college basketball games in years. The sport just hasn’t been a draw for me.

If I die tonight

Obituaries, far and away, are my least favorite stories to write. I’ve always felt that way.

Don’t get me wrong. I love typing out favorite stories and memories of those we’ve lost too soon. I love hearing family and friends recount those memories and paint a vivid, beautiful picture of who that person truly was.
