RAISING ZONA STAFF
Scott Allen - Editor – I am a native of Phoenix, married to Andrea w/one son, Brady. I have been a fan since day one in 1988. I had a job with the Cardinals during seasons two and three in Arizona as a ballboy during training camp in Flagstaff. I am an avid sports fan who loves all major sports teams in Phoenix. I was even married at an Arizona Diamondbacks game. I grew up on sports and got my love for football from my father, who played college ball at Northwestern University. I have a degree in journalism from the University of Arizona.
Baily Deeter – Co-Editor: I am a Bay Area native who loves the NFL. I am a Broncos fan, but I am also a believer in Cardinals. I am a Senior Writer for Bleacher Report and an Assistant Editor for Golden Gate Sports, another Fansided site. I am very young, but I know my sports and love to express my opinions by writing. I love to interact with readers, so if there’s anything you want to ask me, don’t hesitate to email me, comment on one of my articles or send me a message on Twitter.
Ryan Sakamoto – Staff Writer: Ryan is a Bay Area native who’s also the Founder of Niner Fans, Editor of Niner Noise and Senior Staff Writer for Golden Gate Sports. Born and raised in San Jose, he also graduated from San Diego State University. Ryan is a passionate Niner Faithful that’s been fortunate to be a front row season ticket holder since ’91. He eats, sleeps, and breathes, red and gold! For more information, please contact him via email at [email protected].
Edgar Valenzuela Villezcas - Staff Writer: I’m a journalism student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU trying to pursue my dream of becoming a play by play commentator or a sports anchor for ESPN. I’m a die hard AZ Cardinals and Diamondbacks fan. While I root for the Knicks and Thunder, my favorite basketball team is of course the Suns. I follow baseball, basketball and football almost religiously, and I’m always willing to talk sports.
