Hello everyone, this is Matt and I hope you are enjoying the end to your Labor Day weekend. I interrupt this Tennessee losing effort (at least at Halftime while I am writing this) to ask all of you to join me in welcoming KSR’s newest Contributing Writer, Aaron Torres to our site! If you have been around KSR for awhile, you are almost certainly familiar with Aaron and his work. He has been a guest on our radio show, has written columns that we have linked and has even hosted for me during my vacation. He is probably best known to UK fans for his tremendous book “One and Fun” (which you can purchase at this link), the definitive chronicle of Calipari’s first UK team, the awesome 2010 group. The book is one of the best collection of UK stories on a team of all-time and since working on it, Aaron has made himself known to UK fans everywhere as a great chronicler of all things Cats.
We recently reached an agreement with Aaron to have him join us for a couple of reasons. One is obviously Aaron’s talent. I truly believe Aaron is one of the best young writers in college sports today and his thoughts and opinions are amongst the best in the country. But second, I think it is important that KSR have a voice talking about UK and college basketball/football that isn’t simply a lifelong UK fan. Aaron will bring us a little bit of an outsider’s perspective (he lives currently in LA) and allow us some views from outside the bubble that I think will be great for the site. He will be writing two columns a week for us, doing profiles of basketball related topics and eventually starting a podcast on the KSR Podcast Network. We are very excited to have him on board and I know he will join Drew, Tyler, Nick, Jack, Freddie and the rest of the gang in making the best UK site on the internet even better.
So welcome Aaron when he begins writing, enjoy his features and thanks for being a reader on KSR.
