Hello, Borger! I am your new sports editor for the Borger News Herald.
I spent the first 18 years of my life growing up in Morse, Tx just north of Borger.
I went to Pringle-Morse until 8th grade, and I graduated in 2002 from West Texas High (Go Comanches!).
I graduated from WTAMU in Canyon with a business degree in 2007. My son, Jace was also born that year. He is a fantastic four year old, and probably knows more about sports than I do.
