Nearly a decade ago, I sent an email to the sports editor of The Dallas Morning News recommending that they start covering the growing fantasy football phenomenon and offering my services as a freelance contributor. He eventually gave me a call, said he liked the ideas I offered, asked for some sample columns...and the rest is history.
Since then, I've been blessed to win some awards and have expanded my footprint to some of the top newspapers across the nation, as well as Sporting News magazine.
Now, a couple years after budget cutbacks at the Morning News sent my column to the cutting-room floor, I'm proud to announce that I'll be returning online at Dallasnews.com this season.
It's good to be back where it all started, and in my hometown paper where I belong.
My weekly columns will begin once the NFL preseason officially kicks off.
