Staff Writer

Born in Ohio, I am a life-long Ohio State Buckeyes fan, and I’m unashamed of that fact. I’ll fight anyone who speaks ill of my beloved Bucks (not really, but seriously). Raised in Arizona (Glendale represent!), I grew to love the Arizona Cardinals over the years despite the franchise’s perpetual disappointment. Do not mistake my fanhood for blind homerism, however -- I’m a realist, and I call it how I see it. In addition to being part of the ROTB team, I cover the Cardinals for Bleacher Report and Yahoo! Sports and contribute to Cold, Hard Football Facts, providing football stats junkies with their next fix. I don’t always provide football stats, but when I do, I prefer to shout them in your ear through a megaphone. I am the Dictator of the Data.
