Jared has played and loved the game of basketball for ten years. He has dreamed of being a sportswriter since he can remember, and followed all aspects of Minnesota high school hoops even during his own prep playing career. Jared graduated from Maple Grove High School in 2016, and played basketball and football for the Crimson. He played alongside the likes of Reed Nikko and Brad Davison for multiple years on the court. Jared is currently a sports writer for the Herald Journal in the fringe west metro, covering high school athletics. You can reach Jared on Twitter @JaredNHR or by email at email@example.com.
