Pat Burns


I'm a graduate of Texas Christian University with a degree in news-editorial journalism. I grew up watching and playing sports. Once I realized I was not going to ever play third base for the Texas Rangers, I decided to do the next best thing: to cover the teams I grew up watching. I guess you can say I'm an eager college graduate who's hoping to make it in this cut-throat world of journalism, and trying to enjoy the journey along the way.
