Ryan Wooley has pursued a career in sports broadcasting since his childhood and is proof that anybody can do whatever they put their mind to.
Wooley grew up in Westland Michigan where he graduated from John Glenn High School and then went on to Eastern Michigan University, where he received a Bachelors degree in “Electronic Media and Film”.
While at EMU, Ryan worked for WQBR, a student radio station where he served as the host of two shows per week. He also anchored the weekly news, delivered halftime updates during football and basketball on 89.1 WEMU, and handled the play by play for both football and basketball on the campus television station “E-TV”. Currently, Wooley is the play by play voice of the John Glenn High School football team as well as the EMU women’s basketball team.
In his free time, Ryan likes to work on cars, play video games, watch sports and hang out with friends. He currently resides in Belleville with his wife Michelle.
There were so many winners that I could have picked this week but I felt these three really stood out above the rest.
Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner will wear an orange practice jersey that was given to the team via Oregon State because the Wolverines wanted a color other than red.
I’m sure many Michigan fans have posted on social media over the last few days how dirty they felt after rooting for the Buckeyes on Tuesday night to beat the Hoosiers, but what Ohio State did was not only good for the Big 10 as a whole, but Michigan and Michigan State’s season.
Deadspin truly did their homework before releasing their findings and should be applauded for what true journalism is meant to be, which is following every lead and leaving no stone unturned, making sure the story is correct the first time.
After riding high the last few weeks I was due to have a down week and it sure hit me hard! I went 6 and 9 in my picks but still sit with an impressive mark of 90-61-1 overall.
In week 11 I posted an astonishing 11-2 mark and have now increased my overall total to 84-52-1.
It honestly feels like the season just started but believe it or not we’re closer to the season being over than the start.
With all the talk last week about the NHL and the Players Union meeting in a secret location in New York City for multiple days and hours at a time, it seemed very promising that the league would reach a new CBA and we finally would have hockey by the start of December.
After all the changes the NFL has made to the way their game is played over the years it still amazes me that in 2012 a regular season game can end in a tie.
With Halloween now behind us that means another week of NFL action is on its way and after posting another 8-5 week, I’m feeling pretty good about myself as my overall record has now improved to 56-42.
