After 10 years, it’s time to bid a very bittersweet farewell to The Gainesville Sun.

I recently accepted a job in production at ESPN in Bristol, CT. I’ll get the chance to write behind the scenes and blog. It’ll be hard to move away from Gainesville, where I was born and raised. It’ll also be difficult to trade the sun for the snow, which I’ve never seen in my life.

I just wanted to say thanks to Sports Editor Arnold Feliciano as I’m forever in debt to him. He’s as good a boss as anyone can ask for. I also wanted to say thanks to the sports staff, where I made several life-long friendships. And, of course, I want to thank all the followers of The Sun over the years. It was an absolute privilege to get the opportunity to cover Gator football, SEC football, the Jaguars and Gators Gone Pro among other things throughout my tenure here. Please comment below on whether you’d like the Gators Gone Pro blog to continue.

Once again, thanks for all of your support.
