My name is Adam Rizzo and I’m a graduate from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, majoring in Sport Management. I’ve been a life long Celtics fan since I’ve grown up around the Boston area my entire life. I’m currently striving to become a math teacher, but at the same time I’m a high school basketball coach and an aspiring Athletic Director. Everything I do is based around sports and I’ve had a desire to be a sports writer, so blogging about the Celtics is a hobby of mine. I hope to be here for quite some time and hope everyone enjoys (and criticizes) my articles!
