Evan Park (19) is a major sports fan of many teams which cover many cities and states. He has played every major sport in the book at a competitive level at some point in his life. His specialties are, but are not limited to, MLB, WTA, and NCAA Basketball coverage.
Many sports nicknames coincide with the new Georgian; they mostly depend on which sport he is playing: “Porzingis” if the lanky 6-foot-4-inch Caucasian sharpshooter is on the basketball court or “Big Handsome” if he’s mixing it up with his 100-plus miles per hour serve on the tennis court. He’s also been called “The Bigger Unit” when pitching on the baseball diamond, showing his superiority to Roger Clemens. The names go on and on.
Evan has lived in multiple great sports areas, starting in central New Jersey, then to the starting point of the Boston Marathon in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, and as of June 2015 living in Alpharetta, Georgia. Living in great sports towns and cities has given this renaissance man many different vantage points on many different sports teams.
At Hopkinton High School, he was known as the Dali Lama of sports, knowing almost everything about every major and most minor sports. “I just love sports man, I mean how can you not!” Park said in an interview on Feb. 30 of 2015. That love for sports will continue as he writes for Youngspeak.
“When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout and you’re getting your a** hammered by guys—there’s no better feeling than to have that done.”
