Dylan Lee blogs about sports

Dylan Lee is a sports fan, pure and simple.

He loves to play sports, particularly hockey and golf. He watches sports on TV and in person. He reads about sports all the time, including Sports Illustrated and Golf magazines, and now he’s blogging about sports.

Not all that many ninth-graders seek out ways to get in some extra writing, but Dylan, a student at Harper Junior High School, does.

The blogging actually started back when he was in sixth grade. His family was living in China temporarily for his dad’s job and mom Joyce suggested a travel blog as part of his homeschooling.

Back in Davis, travel writing didn’t seem the best fit, so he switched to a topic he’s a big fan of anyway — sports.

“Whatever interests me, I write about,” he said. “I try to make it not boring — not just spitting out facts, even though I like them. I want to make it interesting for all sorts of people.”

Recent blog posts have focused on golf (he’s a huge fan), bringing back the World Baseball Classic (a good thing), and the San Francisco Giants pitching staff (he’s a Giants fan all the way). He also throws in some polls now and then, like “Who is the best player in basketball?” or “Who’s going to the Super Bowl?”

And sometimes younger brother Gabe provides inspiration, like for the most recent blog post: the top five coolest golfers.

When he’s not busy blogging or in school, Dylan keeps busy with his own sports. He’s been playing hockey since the age of 5 and currently plays for Norcal Extreme out of Woodland as well as the Davis High junior varsity team. He played baseball as well for many years, but recently gave that up in favor of golf, which he also will play for Davis High this year.

He calls sports writing his dream job and hopes more of it lies in his future.

In the meantime, he’ll be blogging.
