My wife and I live in Chattanooga, TN, where I work as an educator and freelance writer. Originally from Tucson, AZ, I grew up a big fan of west coast sports (particularly the PAC 12 and my Arizona Wildcats!) and have retained that love even now that I live in the Southeast. Football has the power to unite all sorts of different people around the teams they love, and I am a big fan of passionate, loyal fan bases that show a lot of team and town spirit. Bear Down!
