Darryl's career in journalism spans more than 30 years as a sportswriter and managing editor. He has extensive experience covering Major League Baseball, NCAA Football and Basketball, and high school sports and to a slightly lesser degree, pro basketball and football. Tight daily deadlines honed his skill of getting the story quickly and accurately, with a witty conversational style.
Darryl has covered events ranging from the World Series, the college football national championship and the NCAA Tournament Final Four to less popular harness racing and women's field hockey. He wrote about these in nationally recognized publications, many times under tight daily deadlines that honed his ability to write quickly and accurately and to interview subjects in ways that elicit descriptive, non-cliched quotes.
