She also recounts the oh so sweet and extremely modern way…

Summer Sanders is known for many things – being an Olympic gold medalist swimmer may come to mind.  Or her more recent turn on Celebrity Apprentice.  But, besides her family, Summer’s biggest passion these days may very well be fantasy football. Summer is an avid, knowledgeable fantasy player who participates in multiple leagues, both as a commissioner and an owner.  As we started our interview, I could sense her excitement over talking about the “sport” in which women are joining in droves.   Check out the entire interview for Summer’s dream fantasy team for 2010, how she plans to improve her…

Meet Jenna Laine.  A USF graduate just three years ago, Jenna already has many feathers in her professional cap.  She covers the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for SportsFanLive.com.  She just recovered from covering her first Super Bowl (where she conducted 40-plus interviews!).  And while she’s already interviewed names such as Barry Sanders, she really made a splash onto the national scene with her recent, exclusive story about an offensive tackle from Abilene Christian named Tony Washington.  Washington is not your average draftee – he is a registered sex offender.  Jenna covered a difficult situation with thoroughness and objectivity.  It is a…

Nancy Cooley is a fighter.  After countless radiation treatments, surgeries, and reconstructions she is recently in remission from Stage III breast cancer, the prominent disease that affects 1 in 8 women during their lives.  This week I got the chance to visit Nancy at Briar Woods High School in Ashburn, Virginia, where she is back educating high school students about the world of business and the importance of community service (yes, they can co-exist). With shiny, shoulder-length hair, a glowing complexion and a bounce in her step, it would honestly be impossible to peg Nancy as anything but healthy.  After…

Podcast:  Sara Holladay’s Bio from FFLibrarian.com I could spend all day watching college football on Saturdays and pro football on Sundays just to do it all over again the next weekend. In the 2008 season, I was in seven fantasy football leagues, which led to pure chaos and I’ll be narrowing that number of leagues down significantly for 2009. This year will be my sixth year of fantasy football and I will be spending a lot of time preparing for draft day in August – and sharing all that research with you! So why Fantasy Football Librarian?
