  1. Saying goodbye after 35 years of writing about great athletes and coaches

    It's better I start at the end and work my way back.

High School Sports Writer

Tom grew up on Detroit's east side and has lived there for about 26 years, with stops in Ann Arbor and Southern California along the way.

His main beat is high schools; it's the area he started in and continues to have a passion for. He has also covered other areas such as colleges (beat writer for Detroit Mercy and Oakland University men's basketball teams) and professional sports. He's also done radio and television work, including a show called Prep Ticket that runs on Comcast Local, and STATE CHAMPS!, a show that airs on MYTV20 and is re-broadcast on Comcast Local.
