About Simply Sports Takes

Simply Sports Takes is a continuation of a small Instagram account I previously used to discuss sports. In some of my older posts, you will see certain videos or pictures that reference the account. Everything from the account I previously wrote has been added to the website, and can be found under the Team News tab on the home page. Switching to a website and a new name is a very exciting step in my journey that I am looking forward to.

About the Writers

Owen Crisafulli

My name is Owen Crisafulli, and I’m currently a junior Sport Management major at Nichols College. Sports are my passion, and I thoroughly enjoy writing about my thoughts and opinions that are related to the game. I have been a lifelong fan of the major professional teams in Boston, so that is generally what I will write about. Occasionally I will write about different subjects around the major leagues, or just sports in general as well. Regardless of the topic, I hope you enjoy what I write, and feel free to leave feedback. (To check out Owen’s latest articles, click here.)

Ryan Whitley

Hi! I’m Ryan Whitley, a soon-to-be graduate of Loyola University Maryland who loves to talk and write about sports. No matter the league, sport, or story, I’ve got something to say about it. I’m a diehard fan of all of the major Boston sports teams, and follow the major leagues in the United States throughout the year. From game recaps to opinion pieces to articles looking towards the future of a team or league, I’ll cover it all here. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy!

Nate Crisafulli

My name is Nate Crisafulli, and I’m currently a senior at Marlborough High School. Although I enjoy most sports, basketball and football are my two favorites to follow. I’m a diehard Boston Celtics and New England Patriots fan, and follow news from both of the leagues as well. I’ll usually be writing about any major news in either of those two leagues, as well as an occasional article about any one of the major Boston Sports teams. Hope you enjoy!

My name is Lane Parks, and I am currently a Sport Management major at Nichols College. Sports have always been a central part of who I am as a person. I grew up in the heart of central Florida as a diehard Florida Gators and Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. Football has been a passion of mine since I started playing at four years old.
