Andy Frye wrote his first-ever sports-related article called “Chess Champs” for the Blair Mill Elementary newspaper aka Blair Mill Beagle in 4th grade. Call it the start of a hobby on steroids. It wasn’t until way later that he made it a regular gig.
In July 2011, Andy published his first story for ESPN.com, and later that fall covered high school football for ESPN Chicago. After that, he would write for six years for ESPN, before a stint with Rolling Stone, covering pop culture and sports, plus two World Series. Currently, he interviews athletes and sports legends for Forbes.
