    It all began in the summer of 1974 with a three-paragraph American Legion baseball story. I figured if they’d let a 14-year old do it, this sports writing gig might not be all bad. Whether it’s as a sports writer (Shreveport Journal, Shreveport Times) or as a radio talk-show host (SportsTalk) for more than two decades, I’ve been in some form of local media for more than 40 years.

    North Louisiana journalism magnate Wiley Hilburn, columnist and storyteller extraordinaire, introduced himself to me in the parking lot of George T. Madison, the Liberal Arts building at Louisiana Tech. He said he’d heard I had good grades in English — despite how I talked — and that I needed to major in something. He put me on the school paper and said he’d help me. And he did. And he said that the sports editor of the school paper was John James Marshall. So…if you ain’t got timing, you ain’t got nothin’.
