First of all, thank YOU for visiting Puck & Field!
My name is Luke Garrison and I'm a 27-year-old professional sports and news writer currently living in Toronto, ON, Canada.
I completed a Graduate Certificate in Sports Journalism at Centennial College in 2018 which lead to a three-month internship at TSN. I now work full-time as a resume writer and part-time as a freelance sports journalist.
Before all of this, I completed my Undergraduate Degree in English at the University of Guelph in Guelph, ON.
I created this website because I was tired of only freelancing for other people. It's something I've done for the past 10 years. I will most certainly continue to write for other news outlets; however, I wanted to experience what it was like to take the reigns on my own web project.
It would be nice to turn a profit since everyone likes to be paid for hard work; however, I mainly started this site in order to learn what it would take to make a sports website happen.
I am far from knowledgeable when it comes to site building so what better way to learn than to do, right?
Anyways, my primary focus will be on covering both the NHL and the MLB. You will likely see more articles based around Toronto sports as that is my forte.
There will be articles of all kinds; however, I wish to mostly generate in-depth, unique content.
With so many news outlets reporting on what's happening in real time, it's very difficult to write an article that won't just regurgitate what's already out there.
As such, I will be getting as creative as possible by trying to find subject matter that is both different and appealing to the avid hockey/baseball fan.
I'll look into providing some NFL content once football season begins as well.
