Growing up in Richmond, VA, George caught as many Richmond Braves (AAA) games as he could, resulting in him becoming an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves. Through the years he's added the Redskins, UNC Tar Heels and Boston Celtics to his list of favorite teams.

Now, at least 10 fantasy football and seven basketball seasons later, he's still at it and is now in his fourth year writing for FantasyPros.
