Scott Fisher, Calgary Sun

I was born and raised in Sundre, Alta., and have been a massive sports fan from Day 1. After going to school (at Augustana, U of A, U of C and Mount Royal), I've covered every sport under the Sun for various publications. My full-time beats at the Sun include the WHL and chuckwagons/rodeo.
