Jim Thomas

Sports Writer

                      

   

1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring sports writer?
Write, watch a game on TV and write a story on it the next day.  Then compare your writing piece to one you see in a newspaper.

 

2.) Why did you decide to get into writing?

It is something I have always liked to do. I wrote even before my teenage years, in a fake book I made up called the Sports Page, and then I wrote in high school.

 

3.) What has been one of your favorite athletes to interview?

I cover a lot of football and some college stuff, and I have interviewed a lot of interesting people. I would say D'Marco Farr, he was always good to talk to. He has a great sense of humor and he always had great answers.  I have talked to a lot of Rams players and they are good to talk to as well, they are great character guys.

 

4.) What would you be if you were not a sports writer?

I don't know, that's the scary part.  Maybe a history teacher and a high school basketball coach, or a baseball.  I played basketball a lot growing up.


5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

When you do a job like I do, you spend hours at the desk. So I like to workout, read, travel, and hang out with my family.
