Born in Boulder and raised in Milan, Italy like Danilo Gallinari. Also like Gallo, I moved to the States at 18; unlike Gallo, I wasn’t drafted by the Knicks but came to attend Western State Colorado University (go Mountaineers!). I graduated in 2009 with a major in Communications and Media and two minors in Journalism and Philosophy.

After working in the linguistic field for a few years and listening to sports radio ALL DAY at work, I decided to do it myself and it changed my life around. (Now, I can say I couldn’t be happier and am proudly married to the love of my life Kate.) I moved back to Gunnison and started volunteering for the NPR affiliate up in Crested Butte, while also starting to contribute on an NFL podcast for A 10 minute bit on one podcast turned into being a regular, year-round on three different podcasts on the NFL, College Football, and the NFL Draft. I’ve since started writing on and as well as writing in depth Draft analysis for in the past 3 years. I love the Draft and knowing the stars of the future before everyone else. My sports mount Rushmore is Terrell Davis, Patrick Roy, Italian soccer star Roberto Baggio, and John Elway, deal with it! Hit me up at @andresimone to talk NFL, NCAA football, NFL Draft, CSU football, Nuggets or anything else Colorado or Italy sports related.

    Why make such a big deal about Will Butcher? I don’t know if NJD is saying the same thing about Kerfoot, but the AVS signed TWO college players that walked away from their draft teams even though they lost their own (Butcher). Are NJD fans/players looking forward to Kerfoot possibly playing against them in a few days and telling each other to give him an extra hit?? Sounds pretty silly if they are– the players both did what was within their rights, that’s all. Think of it like a one for one trade, Kerfoot for Butcher and suddenly it doesn’t seem so bad…

      Totally agree. The Avs took a chance when they didn’t sign Butcher before last season and that risk failed. Butcher had an all time great college season and earned the right to pick his NHL team. He picked a team that was going to give him the best chance to get a big payday on his second contract. Same thing with Kerfoot.
