I'm a diehard football and basketball fanatic who is pursuing a career as a sports journalist. After playing football for seven years, I decided to share my passion for the sport with fellow fans everywhere by writing about the sport. Since then, I've become a freelance writer for Yahoo! Sports as well as numerous other sites. I've been published in USA Today and have several interviews on different ESPN radio stations. Check me out on Twitter @GilAlcarazIV and hit me up to talk sports.
