Martin Z. was a full-time sportswriter for "USA Today" and has written hundreds of features for "USA Today," "Sports Illustrated," and numerous other newspapers and magazines. His forte is writing about people. When he covers a game, he focuses on one or more athletes and interviews them afterward so he can give the readers an insight that reporters who focus on plays don't provide.
