Jared is from the booming metropolis of Clarinda, Iowa. He writes full-time about football and basketball for one of the only two website that can match this one, CycloneFanatic. After a less than stellar freshman season on the Simpson College basketball team, he made his (goat emoji) life decision, and transferred to Iowa State. He’s not a drop-out, and in fact graduated with a degree in Journalism in 2016. When he isn’t writing or working, which is almost never, you can find Jared on his couch with his dog, chasing said dog in the street, on the side of the road with a flat tire, or sipping some ice-cold Busch Light. Jared is also fond of the NBA and rap music, both of which he write about for The Tailgate Society.
