I am the Creator of The Sports Column. I developed the site to give everyone a chance to write quality sports articles. I am also the Director of Community Relations for the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation and formerly a producer/board operator at CBS Radio Baltimore. I was an on-air host for the Brett and Barry Show, as well as a producer for WNST, 1570am Baltimore. I have also worked in sports broadcasting for several years at WBAL Baltimore and DC50 Washington D.C.
My name is Jeffrey and I’m the co-creator and digital strategist of The Sports Column (@TheSportsColumn). I’m a Web Developer (HTML, CSS & WordPress) and when I’m not doing that or working behind the scenes at The Sports Column. I’m also husband, father, and die-hard Redskins fan. I’ve been know to be a pretty nice guy all-round as well.
I’m responsible for keeping the site up-to-date with the latest articles. I edit and post submissions from across the country and around the world. I began writing about sports in high school, served as sports editor for my collegiate paper, and worked in the SID’s Office at St. John Fisher College. Deciding on a career in academics, I had a 35-year career at Michigan State as faculty member and administrator. My specialty is sports commentary. There’s more to sports than the games.
I work on the daily operation of the website including posting articles and promoting on social media. I’m a teenager whose goal is to be a sports journalist. I love sports and I spend most of my free-time watching, talking, or writing about sports. l love writing about sports because it gives me the freedom to voice my opinions about something I love and am passionate about.
