Ed. Note: Welcome to BSD's newest contributor, Griffin Kurzius. Griff will be joining us as a sophomore at Wake and will start off by giving us news and links, along with his opinions on the Demon Deacons. Make him feel at home.
Hello Demon Deacons Nation,
It is truly a pleasure and an honor to write stories for some of the best collegiate sports fans in the land. My name is Griffin Kurzius, and I am an incoming sophomore at Wake Forest.
My passion for journalism almost equals my love for Wake Forest sports. I have worked extensively in the media. In high school in New Jersey, I produced and broadcasted seven different high school sports for a student-run club and aired the games on local television. I also wrote articles in the sports section in my high school newspaper. At Wake Forest, I work in the Athletics-Media Relations Department, where I write and edit articles and upload photos onto WakeForestSports.com.
If you could not tell already, I am a complete sports junkie.
More after the jump...
I grew up mostly following professional sports, but always held a fondness for good ol' Wake Forest. I began to watch the Deacons because of my love for Chris Paul and embraced the team after many entertaining battles with Duke and UNC.
My favorite moment as a Wake fan was beating Florida State this past season and storming the field. There are very few moments that exude the same excitement as sprinting onto BB&T Field and jolting in pure joy.
I look forward to joining a group of excellent group of writers to deliver the latest in Wake Forest sports news to dedicated fans. As a student, I add an insiders perspective and I hear the beliefs and desires of the student body every day.
Simultaneously, I provide an outsider's viewpoint because the ACC, especially the deep-rooted rivalries of the North Carolina 4, is still new to me. I often may assess situations as a native New Jerseyan (and no, not all of NJ is like Jersey Shore), instead of the Wake Forest student.
I look forward to hearing your opinions and corresponding to all of you in the future.
And as always ... Go Deacs!
