My name is Allen Jackson and I was born in Detroit, MI. I am the youngest of four children and a journalism major attending Wayne State University. When I was in middle school I had a pleasure to go with Detroit News high school writer Tom Markowski to a football game and how he cover the games.
Currently I write for the South End in the sports department. This blog will be based on sports especially Wayne State sports.
During the winter semester, I’ve covered the WSU Women’s basketball team and their run to the conference tournament then to the NCAA tournament. I’ve a love for sports especially for my local teams like the Lions, Pistons, Red Wings and Tigers ever since I was a kid and that is where my interest for journalism took place.
