Ashley Dunkak spent the last three years covering Kansas State football and men’s basketball as a correspondent for the Associated Press. Before working for the AP, she wrote for the Kansas State Collegian, where she also spent time as a copy editor and sports editor. Overall, she compiled hundreds of sports stories on her way to graduating summa cum laude in 2013. She minored in Spanish and economics along with majoring in journalism, but writing has always been her passion.

Dunkak grew up in Olathe, Kan., where she raced her dad to the mailbox every Thursday to see who would get to read Sports Illustrated first. At 13, she emailed her dad a recap of a Kansas City Chiefs game, and he responded that she should think about becoming a sports writer. Almost a decade later, that is exactly what she is doing, and she could not be more thrilled to be doing so in a great sports town like Detroit.
