No sense in burying the lede: As of today, I am joining 247Sports as a national college football writer.
In the midst of a uniquely challenging year, I genuinely remained optimistic and hopeful that a company and a job would surface that would be better than any position I had held previously. For myriad reasons, I truly believe 247 is that company and this is that job.
I feel certain I am hopping aboard a rocket ship already piercing the sky, bound for places unexplored in sports media. 247’s desire to expand its coverage of college football makes this a perfect fit at the perfect time.
And the fact that 247Sports is based just south of Nashville, in Brentwood, is no small footnote. As my wife and I continue to create a foundation for ourselves here, this helps us to build community - and a home - unlike anywhere we’ve ever been before.
I’m so excited to get back to work, so happy to be on this team. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.
My wife, Brooke, has been the real MVP during this season of transition. I’m so grateful for her. And I cannot thank my family and friends enough for their love and encouragement as we’ve worked through this change. I’m so glad that we’ve arrived at this point.
It’s a new day. I walk into the warmth of it, embracing with hopefulness the opportunity in front of me. And I couldn’t have done it without your support and help. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart
