23 years old, Tommy has been a life-long Packers, Brewers, Bucks and Badgers fan.

He would like to make a career out of sports journalism, hoping to parlay his B/R writing experience into a career.

Writing for B/R, he'll generally stick to the Wisconsin Badgers, but he might slip in a Packers, Brewers, or Bucks story from time to time.

If you have any suggestions or questions, let Tommy know in an article comment.

    As a "correspondent", Tommy, you need to know your Packer history. In the March 15 article about Greg Jennings, when you wrote "Favre..., never having the luxury of true dominant number one target", you displayed your ignorance. For his first three years as a starter ('92-'94), Favre had Sterling Sharpe. Sterling was already one of the league's best receivers (All-Pro in both '89 & '90) before Favre arrived in Green Bay. In those three years with Favre, Sharpe: was 1st Team All-Pro in '92 & '93; lead the league in receptions in '92 & '93; lead the league in receiving yards in '92; lead the league in receiving touchdowns in '92 & '94; and lead the league in points scored in '94. He became one of only seven players in NFL history to win the "Triple Crown" at the receiver position - leading the league in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns, and receptions in the same year ('92). If he hadn't gotten injured, he would certainly have joined his brother in the HOF. Remember what Shannon said in his acceptance speech? "I'm the only pro football player that's in the Hall of Fame, and I'm the second best player in my own family." Favre had the luxury of arguably the league's best receiver while he learned the ropes as a starting QB.
