Talk about a natural for the MyVeronaNJ’s sports editor job. Greg Racioppe is a former high school and collegiate player in football and baseball, sports camp counselor and elementary school basketball ref. Greg loves to write, and majored in English at Bowdoin College in Maine, where he received his A.B. in 2009. Like any Internet journalist worth his salt, he’s also proficient on blogging software from a stint running a Web site for a Comag Marketing Group, a joint marketing venture of media giants Hearst and Conde Nast. As luck would have it, he learned WordPress on the internship, the  software that we use to run MyVeronaNJ. He is also the elder son of VHS’s longtime football and baseball coach Lou Racioppe.

Greg is eager to get started covering the full roster of spring sports–lacrosse, baseball, softball, golf, track and tennis. He’ll be scouting practices this month, meeting with coaches and writing up season previews. He’s collecting team rosters now; after opening day he’ll welcome  background from player, parents and coaches, along with photos and videos when he can’t attend a game himself. You can reach him at [email protected]. Welcome home, Greg!
