On Dylan Favre

My new Bleacher Report piece came out today. It’s a profile of Dylan Favre, Brett Favre’s nephew and the backup quarterback at UT-Martin.

Here’s the link.

I’m not one to gush, but, well, I really took to this guy. I’m a fan of redemptive stories, and that’s pretty much Dylan’s life. He was the typical cocky high school quarterback who lived football-football-football, then one day woke up and realized, “Um, there are many things more important …”

Anyhow, I hope y’all read and enjoy.

The Bleacher Report experience has been a blessing for me. They’ve allowed me to dig deep into pieces—word count be damned, travel be damned. It’s all one can ask for.

  1. Jeff,
    Absolutely, an incredible article on Dylan Favre. I just wish you would have asked him one thing… How come his name is spelled Favre yet pronounced Farve. It has driven me insane since the 90’s.

  2. Amazing article! I don’t always love sports journalism, but these long-form redemptive pieces are so compelling. I hope to write like you one day!
