Conor Denton

Hello everyone my name is Conor Denton and I am a freshman student at Arizona State University's W.P. Carey School of Business. I am majoring in Sports and Media Studies with a possible minor in Sports Journalism. I am originally from Los Angeles but my family and I just recently moved farther south near San Diego. Speaking of which, I've been a San Diego Chargers fan my entire life, 18 years to be exact. This is my first online blogging experience ever and I am more than excited to write insightful articles on BoltBeat moving forward!
