I'm a full-time college student who loves to write and talk about the Falcons. I founded Falcons' blog RiseUpReader.wordpress.com and contribute to Cover32, Top Sports Report, and the Falcoholic's FanPost section regularly.

I'm a coffee addict, a sports junkie, a former touring drummer, a gamer, and a lifelong Falcons fan.

I also have a super-model fianceé, a six-pack, and a high credit score. Two out of those last three are true.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB New York Yankees
  • NBA Brooklyn Nets
  • NFL Atlanta Falcons
  • NCAAF Virginia Tech Hokies

it's early, but did the Falcons make the right call in Matthews? Should they have gone for someone else?
