It's one thing to chat sports with buddies, but it's another thing to be able to actually break down sports as a journalist. There are deadlines to make, and a skill that is required to actually create solid stories about the players and the programs in which you cover.

Brandon Walton, is a fantastic sports journalist. His passion combined with his skill, make for a fantastic end piece when he publishes his work.

Today we'll get to hear from @MrIdahoPreps about his journey as a journalist. Find out about his experience working for a local newspaper and what he learned there, and find out what it takes to put together a solid story.
