Introduction
I have covered the Chicago Bears, Bulls and Cubs beats throughout my career with the Chicago Tribune. I currently write a weekly column and assist in coverage of the Bears, Cubs and White Sox, as well as several other local assignments.
Bragging rights
Proud to be the namesake of the Fred Mitcheall Award (www.fredmitchellaward.com) that annually honors the top placekicker among the more than 750 non-FBS colleges in America. I serve on the board of trustees at Wittenberg University. I have written 11 sports books.
