Welcome Chris Hooker

Posted on: December 24th, 2011 by Devin Kharpertian Comments

As the season draws nearer, as does our need to improve our blog's ranks with great writers. The latest? Chris Hooker. Here's a little about him:

Chris Hooker is currently a junior at Susquehanna University, located near Amish country Pennsylvania, with a major in creative writing. He grew up in Livonia, New York, a small suburb outside of Rochester. He's been a diehard New Jersey Nets fan since he discovered them on the YES Network during the first year of the Jason Kidd era, and has continued following the team closely since then. More recently, the days of "The Decision," the Melodrama and the Dwightmare have all taken a difficult toll on Chris' social and academic life.

Before joining Nets Are Scorching, Chris published both fiction and nonfiction in the Eunoia Review and, wrote sports columns at the sports site BareKnucks. Despite his love of writing fiction and memoir, sportswriting has always been his goal. Nets are Scorching is Chris's first chance to get his foot in the door with real basketball analysis and opinions that don't result in brutal arguments with his friends. You can follow him on Twitter @chrishooker9.

Join me in welcoming Chris to the NAS crew. You'll see his writing here in the days, weeks, months, et al to come.
