My name is Michael Tate and i'll be joining the writing staff here at TSK. I have a deep passion and knowledge base of SEC sports. I wanted to give you all a brief description of my career so far and also my background in sports.
I played football (Quarterback) and ran track (400/800 Meters) at Acadiana High School in Lafayette, Louisiana, where we won multiple state titles and countless games. After graduating from high school I attended Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
While attending school there, I also participated in internship programs at two local newspapers - The Daily Advertiser and Natchitoches Times. I covered everything from high school track to girls volleyball and even did box scores for football games. I had the pleasure of developing and cultivating multiple relationships within the SEC community during this time.
I quickly realized that in today's continuously changing and evolving media culture that I would have to expand my brand to make it in this business. Therefore, I knew that coming to TSK and SB Nation by affiliation that I could accomplish this goal. I look forward to giving you not only the most up to date coverage but also unbiased, fact-driven opinions.
