Major:
Broadcasting and Visual Media with a concentration in Film
Why I Love Sports: I love the stories behind the sports. Nothing is purposely scripted, but all sports provide fans an opportunity to step out of reality, even for just a few hours a week, and enter a movie-like world where miracles and true greatness can happen any single day on the court or field. Although sports are slowly evolving within our culture, I also appreciate the traditions every sport has, such as baseball's 7th inning stretch or cutting down the nets in college basketball.
Favorite Sport: Basketball
Favorite Teams: NY Giants, Boston Celtics, NY Yankees

Major:
Broadcasting and Visual Media
Why I Love Sports: It all started when I played wiffle ball with my friends in my hometown of Brooklyn, I developed a love for baseball and eventually the New York Mets. As I grew up I thought of how cool it would be if I were broadcasting baseball games like the professionals on TV. When I decided it was what I wanted to do as a profession, I knew I had to learn more sports and forced myself to like basketball and football, which was easy because those sports were just as good as baseball for me. I am head over heels for sports.
Favorite Sport: Baseball
Favorite Teams: New York Mets, New York Jets, Brooklyn Nets
