Hello folks, My name is Max O’Neill. I am your new sports lead at the Sun. I am super excited to be here and to cover all of the Jimmies teams and their accomplishments. I am originally from New York City, and I graduated in May of 2020 from Ithaca College, a small school in upstate New York with a degree in television-radio.

After graduating as a veteran of both the television station, radio station and newspaper, I moved on to my role as a sports and education reporter at the Craig Press in Craig, a small town in Northwest Colorado. I left that job in March of 2021 to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity back home in the city. After that opportunity failed to materialize, it was time to look toward the future again and I am very excited to have landed with such a great group of people at The Sun and a great community here in Jamestown. In my free time, I like hanging out with friends, working out, playing all kinds of sports, watching sports and playing video games. As a result, if you have any open slots on an adult league baseball team or basketball team or any want to play the latest sports games, feel free to let me know!

In copying my colleague at the paper, Katie Ringer, when she wrote her introduction story, if you have any questions or story ideas that you would like to inform me of, my email is moneill@jamestownsun.com or my office phone number at 907-952-8461. I always need new Twitter followers so hit me up at @MaxONeill16.

Go Jimmies and Blue Jays!
