About Me

DENNER, WILL (cropped)

Basics

  • Age: 21
  • Current City: Eugene, OR
  • Hometown: Portland, OR
  • Education: University of Oregon, Class of 2016
  • Major: Journalism
  • Focus: News/Editorial and Electronic Media

 Background

  • Started freelancing for The Oregonian in high school and have been immersed in journalism since.
  • Currently a sports reporting intern with Ducks Sports Authority, the University of Oregon affiliate of Yahoo! Sports. I cover Ducks football, basketball and baseball, attending home games and weekly press conferences.
  • I also write a column bi-monthly for FishDuck.com, an Oregon football analysis and fan site. This has allowed me to supplement traditional sports reporting with opinion writing in which I can cover a wide range of topics.

Future

  • I aspire to become a beat reporter for a nationally recognized publication, print or digital. Although I enjoy reporting on games and press conferences, I want to tackle tougher sports writing assignments in the future. I want to tell stories that humanize coaches and athletes, making them more than a name and a number on a field.
