My parents moved to a newly growing Gwinnett County back in 1978, when I was 5, and since that day my home and my life has centered around this now sprawling suburbia.

Back when we moved from my native Alabama, there wasn’t much in Gwinnett. I used to ride my bike across two-lane Ga. Hwy. 29 in Lawrenceville with ease. I took a fourth-grade field trip to see Gwinnett Place Mall under construction.

I went to Bethesda Elementary, Sweetwater and Richards Middle (the first year it opened) and Brookwood High School, prior to majoring in journalism at the University of Georgia. Just a few months after graduation, I accepted a sports writer position at the Daily Post in March 1997 and was promoted to sports editor in 2005.

During my time here, I have witnessed some of the incredible talent that continues to pipeline through the county. Six-time MLB all-star Brian McCann of the Atlanta Braves. World Cup forward Josh Wolff. Basketball star Maya Moore. A handful of Olympians.

As of the end of the 2010-11 school year, Gwinnett¹s high school teams had won 213 state championships during my time at the Daily Post. I’ve been fortunate enough to see many of those in person. I look forward to seeing many more in Gwinnett, where I still live with my wife and two young children.
