These are some of my favorite columns from the 90-plus I’ve written for The Stylus over my four years as a sports columnist. For now they’re in link form. Have you read any you loved and think I should include? Write me a few lines why and I’ll include your comments on this page.
- This marked the last column of my junior year. It was the first time in college I had dealt with a cluster of friends graduating and being shoved into the real world. A friend of mine who had graduated the semester before and was still looking for a job sent me a text not long after this was published. He told me he loved the column and was going to keep it to look at when the world did weigh too heavy. I do the same.
- Hockey is big at Brockport. When I was a freshman we had a phenomenal goalie, Todd Sheridan, who was supposed to play D-I before he was diagnosed with cancer. The team has struggled since then and fans don’t pack the arena like they used to, but Brockport hockey will still have my heart. This was my last game as a student and it was a rough one.
- Another hockey one. My favorite quote of all is coach Brian Dickinson (a great guy, by the way) telling me “We’re not anybody’s cupcake.”
- I was called selfish for writing this. I don’t see it that way and I won’t apologize for it. It wasn’t about me. It was about finding comfort when our college needed it. Not everyone has a team to rely on and find safety in. But we do all have teams to watch and take safety in for a short amount of time.
- Brockport gives track and field champion sound welcome
- Children bring hope in face of tragedy (Webster hockey game following Christmas Eve shooting, 2012)
- Brockport women’s soccer soars to all new heights
- Golf and gender are in the rough
