Hey guys! I’m excited to have joined forces with Terry and this great project here at AVID Boston! With Spring Training workouts underway and games set to kick off next week, I figured I’d introduce myself so you guys can be familiar with me throughout the season!
I’m from a small town called Welland, Ontario, Canada (about 15 minutes from Niagara Falls) and being Canadian have been a hockey player all my life. However, at a young age, I took a liking for the Red Sox and have loved them ever since. I still remember being the most upset 9 year old in Canada watching Aaron Boone crush Wakefield’s knuckleball out of Yankee Stadium in the ’03 ALCS.
I’m currently a second-year Arts & Contemporary Studies student at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, focusing on minors in: Law, Criminology and Marketing, and also play on the Varsity Men’s Hockey Team. After completing school, my goal is to become a sports agent working with athletes trying to make it to the big stage!
Writing for AVID Boston is something I’m extremely excited about and can’t wait for Red Sox baseball to be back! Before we know it we will be (hopefully) watching this team play deep into October and fighting for a World Series Title!
