This is a brief summation of my professional works thus far. It is downloadable, please click below.
I cannot express enough how grateful I am for the opportunity WCU gifted me. I have been working for WCU’s Media Relations Department for a couple of months now. I started off by working varsity soccer events. I would operate Daktronics and StatCrew on an event by event basis.
I then received the chance to come on as a Media Relations Game Day Assistant for the basketball season. This position allowed me to be one of the official scorers for WCU Men’s & Women’s Basketball teams. I worked with StatCrew throughout the season to score the games. This experience helped me hone the skills I had previously picked up using StatCrew.
This may be a short post, I could go on talking about the skills and contacts I accumulated while working at WCU. The time that they have all invested in me and my future is greatly appreciated!
And, I’m excited to say that I will be helping out during the softball season in the same capacity!

Every year the Southern Conference puts on a tournament in Asheville, NC. I was granted the opportunity to work in the Media Relations department during this year’s tourney as a ‘runner’. My duties were to deliver stats/gamebooks and answer telephone calls.
This story was written about the Drive’s outfielder, Kyri Washington. As usual, I was allowed to come up with the questions and angle for the story. When I figured out how I wanted to approach this story, I pitched the idea to my supervisor and he approved. I hope you enjoy this story, it can also be found in the August edition of the Drive Magazine
During July 28-30, I was tasked with writing the post-game wrap ups for these games. Our supervisor was out of town for a friend’s wedding and left us in charge of various aspects within the Media Relations department. The Drive were facing the Rome Braves during this homestand.
