This is my first year on 42Fifty, and my sophomore year here at OHS. I’ve always been interested in sports writing and sports broadcasting. This year has provided me with opportunities to explore both of those fields, as I have written pieces for the Sports section of 42Fifty, and I have become involved with broadcasts of OHS home events.
