Erik started out with watching games and staying up late for Sunday and Monday night. It spread to college, and eventually just about every single sport in the book. By the time he graduated from UNF, all his friends and family thought Erik would be better off as a sportswriter. Perhaps a journalist, or a commentator than anything to do with math (boy were they right). So, after wandering around with a degree and looking for a job, he started a blog. The blog turned into some freelance work. After that, work led him right here talking about the game that he loves.
Joran Palacio is a young sports journalist who has written for various leagues, from high school sports to the Arena Football League. Currently, he is a writer for AFLFanZone.com, podcaster for This Week in the AFL, and has been doing play by play broadcasting for four years. Joran has been nominated for a high school version of a Rocky Mountain Emmy for play by play. Joran hopes to continue growing through college and continue to develop his sports journalism career.
