About :: Rizzo
What’s up guys? Thought I’d give a little bio about myself. My name is Rizzo and I’m from Revere. I’m going into my senior year at UMass Amherst and majoring in Sports Management. Although Sports Management is what I want to do, I have taken a great interest in sports journalism as of late.
My favorite teams are all over the place, but obviously I’ve got to represent the home town teams: Celtics, Patriots and the Red Sox. The rest of my favorite teams are all over the place. For basketball, I’m also a Los Angeles Lakers fan as well as a Charlotte Bobcats fan. For college basketball, I’m a huge Boston College fan as well as my UMass Minutemen, but then I’m one of the many North Carolina fans.
I played four years of high school basketball at Revere High, playing varsity for my junior and senior seasons. Mainly a three-point shooter, I set the school record for most threes in a half (six) against #4 Sommerville in my first varsity start ever. Since then, I’m relegated to intramurals at UMass and the local courts with my friends.
Hope you guys enjoy this blog and hopefully I’ll keep this consistently updated.
