Justin is the youngest sports writer for the Bootleg, “the UnAuthorized Authority on Stanford Sports, bringing blockbuster coverage of all in-season, off-season and recruiting news.” He began writing for them at the age of 12 and has never looked back. His first article, “The Muchnick Letter,” published in January 2011, urges Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck to forgo the NFL Draft and return to Stanford for his senior year. The actual letter was handed to Andrew in the team’s hotel lobby prior to his Orange Bowl victory (and just a few days before he made his decision to play one more year of college football). Oliver Luck, Andrew’s dad, confirmed Andrew and his parents had all read the “Muchnick Letter,” leading Justin and the Bootleg community to believe that the letter may have played some small role in Andrew’s decision!
YourSports, a Facebook-meets-ESPN online social sports community, recently launched and welcomed Justin as its youngest Charter Content Creator. Justin writes sports-related articles, including one about the use of goal-line technology in soccer, for YourSports.
