What is your first sports memory? My first memory other than playing baseball and basketball is growing up watching the Blazers and players like Rasheed and Damon and a bunch of the old players. I remember watching the Blazers take on the Lakers and losing to Kobe and Shaq.

What is your dream sporting event to attend? My dream sporting event to attend would be a game 7 in the World Series with the Mariners winning it all. I would love to also be in attendance if the Blazers win a championship. I love baseball and old stadiums so any game in Fenway and Wrigley field is something that I want to experience.

What is your favorite sports movie? Easy it's "The Sandlot". I am pretty sure I have three copies of that movie. It's full of great quotes.

Why do you want to host your own show on The FAN? I love sports, I love talking about sports and I can't think of a better way of spending my time then doing both of those things. Sports mean a lot to me and have really given me a lot in my life and I would love to share that with others.

Anything else you want people to know about you? I'm young but I love learning about sports history. I like learning facts about people who I might have not got to watch. I still have all of the sports cards I collected from when I was a kid; I used to trade them all the time growing up. I have 12 baseball hats and I keep collecting them.
