About Me

'If you believe my father, I've wanted to be a sports reporter since I was five-years-old.'

My Version of The Story:

I seem to remember the bug hitting me when I was 12, when I realized that I didn't have the skill-set to be a starting tight end for the Washington Huskies.


Here's some of my highlight reel:

  • 1995

    Cowboys Beat Reporter, Dallas Morning News

    I was promoted from HS writer to Cowboys beat reporter

    • one of a handful of reporters to get two front page stories on the same day which occurred in 2004, the day that Cowboys cut Quincy Carter
    • covered the beat for 11 consecutive years at the Dallas Morning News, one of the longest tenures at the paper


  • 2007

    General Sports Columnist, Dallas Morning News

    I was the only person ever in the history of the Dallas Morning News to matriculate from intern to general sports columnist

  • 2011 - 2017

    Columnist, ESPN

    • earned the New York Press Club Award with Shaun Assael for story on former athlete who committed murder

    • in 2016, I became the 5th African-American to host a daily radio show
  • 2017 - 2019

Speaking Engagements

In the 10th grade, I knew that if I was going to make it as a sports journalist then I needed to overcome my shyness. So I took a speech class.  To this day, I still use the techniques I learned in that class, which has helped me become an engaging, energetic speaker with a knack for quickly connecting to my audience.


I've covered athletes such as Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders, Darren Woodson, Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott, Dirk Nowitzki, Josh Hamilton, Pudge Rodriguez and Mike Modano. I’ll take you inside various locker rooms and tell you what I've gleaned about success, failure, perseverance and the role race plays in our society.


In the process, I’ll make you laugh and reflect. My goal is not to persuade you to agree with me, it's to get you to consider a perspective you might not have otherwise considered.
