David once thought that he would make it as a Major League pitcher. It didn't take long for him to realize, however, that professional pitchers are expected to consistently top 70 miles per hour on the radar gun. For that reason, he switched his focus to the next best thing--writing about sports.

Now, he is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in journalism. He likes to throw the baseball and pretends to enjoy playing golf despite his inability to shoot below triple-digits. He dreams of one day becoming "that writer that [insert sports personality here] chewed out the other day."

On a professional note, David is a former staffer at UGA's student-run newspaper, the Red and Black, and Bleacher Report's Inaugural Writing Internship program. He is now a proud member of unemployment line and is searching far and wide for a good writing opportunity.

He has been published, referenced or linked on:

    Sorry for wasting your time with my stupid article. But did it really take a former staffer of the Red and Black 10 minutes to read 800 words? Good luck with your job hunt.

    I thought you did a good job with your Federer recap article. I'd recommend including a little more of your own opinion along the way, as that's especially what readers come to B/R for. Recaps are good, but can be found throughout the web. Keep pushing to add your own unique spin and opinion. Good work! - Joel
