My name is William Boor. I am currently a student at Arizona State University. I am a journalism major and an aspiring sportswriter.

While I do go to school in Arizona, I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area so a lot of my favorite teams and athletes are from the northern California area.

In addition to House of Sparky, I currently write for,, and The State Press, which is the ASU student newspaper.
