Hello everyone! My name is Brandon Hopper. I just graduated from Colorado State University-Pueblo with a major in Mass Communications emphasizing in news editorial.

My career as a sports writer has been short (two years), but it's consisted of a lot. I was the sports editor of the CSU-Pueblo TODAY for three semesters and then the editor-in-chief.

Right now I'm an editing intern here at Bleacher Report.

I've interned for The Pueblo Chieftain for a summer. During that time I learned a ton! I was lucky enough to be able to attend a Rockies game and write a mid-season report about it. I also went to Broncos' training camp and wrote a feature about Elvis Dumervil.

I've written about eight articles for The Denver Post. I've covered everything from Colorado College playoff hockey to the girls' 2A basketball state tournament. It was all a very good learning experience.

This past May I was contacted by The Greeley Tribune and covered an event for them.

And last, but certainly not least, I was honored to be syndicated by for my first article on Bleacher Report.

I'm a huge fan of the Rockies, Nuggets and Broncos. Baseball is my first passion. I started playing when I was 2 years old and played through two years of college.

Being two hours south of Denver, I don't get to go to as many games as I'd like. I was blessed enough to be able to attend a few Rockies games during the streak at the end of September 2007. Those were the best games of my far!
