Hi. I’m Les Abbott. I am a journalism student at IUS. I am looking to use my degree to go in the sports journalism field. Sports are the only thing I know. If it weren’t for sports I would probably be living in a van by the river. I’m from Louisville, KY born and raised and went to the best high school on the planet, St. Xavier. While in high school I played AAU basketball and I swam. Despite growing up in Louisville, I despise both UofL and UK and decided to root for a college team with a real coach, the Duke Blue Devils. #BDN!
