Sports Editor, Calvert   |   Email: astates@somdnews.com   |   Phone:


I have covered sports as a writer and editor throughout the Washington, D.C., region since 2002, with stops at Southern Maryland Newspapers (twice), the Calvert Independent (twice), Digital Sports, and the mighty SMACSportsnet (which I co-founded in late-2007). Currently, I am the sports editor at the Calvert Recorder, which gives me the opportunity to cover some of the best student-athletes in the state of Maryland on a daily basis. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, but fortunately spent most of my formative years in Philadelphia where I developed an unhealthy obsession with Philadelphia sports at a ridiculously young age. Many of my favorite childhood memories involve watching Mike Schmidt at the Vet with my dad and brother. I only wish the Phillies had a third baseman of that caliber for my son to root for.
