For this eventual sportswriter, he found an escape through sports. However, since he wasn’t much of an athlete, he took his investment in the industry in a much different capacity, blending it with his love of writing and how it made him feel to witness, among other events, two of his long-suffering teams win their long-elusive championships.
From feeling left out by those who didn’t understand his affliction, this eventual sportswriter was determined to create his own path and make his own way, breaking away from the shackles of self-pity and forced complacency to make a name for himself.
Check out my friend Ryan Cowley's story on how he took the adversity of being a stutterer into a successful sportswriting career. I also wrote the foreword so buy yourself a copy!
