Welcome to Three Yards!
You’re about to experience a veritable cornucopia of content, ranging from Lance Armstrong’s pathological lies to Hollywood’s, well, pathological lies. We will cover the NFL, MLB, college football, and men’s college basketball. We’ll also highlight technology and social media news and information, provide tips and tricks on making the most of your Internet presence, and share the hottest rumblings and grumblings. We’ll even venture into pop culture, ranging from TV and movies to comics, web videos and celebrities.
A little about the author, founder, Editor-in-Chief and Grand Poobah:
Raised in the coastal hub of the South, Savannah, Georgia, Zach spent time after high school graduation at Mercer University, where he whetted his appetite for journalism, sports and cultural criticism. After Mercer, Zach enlisted in the U.S. Navy to tell Sailors’ stories aboard the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower as a Mass Communication Specialist. Learning to shoot, interview, write, edit and share these stories, Zach continued to bolster his love of covering news, sports and events and the way they can shape and affect lives.
Zach started his personal website, Three Yards, in 2010 as a hub of sports, pop culture and news insight, and to feed his belief that his opinions were valid; it has since grown to a monthly viewership of over 10,000 unique visitors.
Always striving to build a better mousetrap (or Death Star, as he would never have allowed a single exhaust port to undermine the integrity of the entire structure), Zach has explored new and creative ways to spread and share content with users around the Web, ranging from live-tweeting NHL games and answering reader mail to in-depth analyses of the latest Internet meme.
Currently a student at Southern Illinois University, Zach works for the campus newspaper, The Daily Egyptian, as a campus reporter and is constantly working to combine his passion for writing and creating with his desire to be the best.
As always, we’re looking for new talent, so if you’re interested in writing for Three Yards, there are *literally* a thousand and seven ways to let us know. Pick one. We’d even take a messenger pigeon. Really.
