Hi, my name is Andrew (or Drew) Rosten. My brother started this blog for me as a Christmas present. Consider it a gift that keeps on giving. I am recently a part-time sports clerk at the Herald & Review in Decatur, but am sometimes asked to report on sporting events in the Bloomington-Normal area. I graduated from Clinton High School and Illinois State University in Normal four years later with a degree in journalism. In my senior year at ISU, I was a sports reporter for the Daily Vidette.
