Hello! My name is Jacob Michael Meluskey and I am a recent graduate of Dickinson College, though you can just call me Jake. Dickinson is a small liberal arts college located in Carlisle, PA, and about 2 hours south of Penn State.
I currently live outside of Allentown, PA, in the Lehigh Valley area. I was a 3 sport varsity athlete while in school, which eventually lead to my decision to play football at Dickinson. While there, I was a 4 year varsity player, a videographer for the college television network, as well as a volunteer for a local non-profit and the annual Special Olympics held at my school. I graduated with a degree in English, and a minor in Film Studies.
My passion for sports is what drives me. I love learning about new players, big games, and all things competitive. Stats are constantly in my head, and I will debate any topic with you if want to get into a fun sports discussion. I hope to provide the area with great coverage of your local high school, and any big games and events happening around the area that you could perhaps check out. So, thanks for reading and I hope I serve the area well!
