Hey ya’ll! My name is Allison Taylor, I’m 24 years old and I currently work in recruiting for athletics at UCLA. I was a student-athlete here at UCLA and graduated in 2011. I am looking for a career in sportscasting/sideline reporting and/or sports writing which is why I am starting this blog! Plus, I’m always aware of what’s going on in the wide world of sports and I usually have an opinion on things… So, what better place to voice them than on my very own blog?!
I have been an athlete my entire life, literally, (Did gymnastics since I was 3!) and growing up in Texas as Daddy’s (only) little girl… well, you could say I REALLY know my sports stuff. I know I have lived in LA for over five years, but I am still totally loyal to my hometown teams, especially the Mavericks, Cowboys, and Rangers. Since I was a student-athlete at UCLA myself, I am very aware of the sports news that envelops our campus, so you will probably be seeing lots of posts about UCLA Athletics.
