I am a 25 year old father. I will be graduating from the University of Montana with a bachelors degree in History this spring. Yet, I use the skills I learned as a historian to analyze fantasy football as well as professional football, which I have followed religously since I was five years old. For some reason I have a have a photographic memory when it comes to football. I never forget a game or a player. I've also worked as a professional sports journalist for four years at the Havre Daily News (look me up on the archives if you don't believe me). I was also coached football, basketball and golf for the Havre Public Schools for four years. I am addicited to Fantasy Football and played in ten leauges last year, winning five. So trust me I can help you win, I'd say I spend a majority of my free time pondering fantasy strategy and watching sports. I also love spending time with my lovely fiancee Emily Castor and my son David Peterson. If you want to talk football or any other sports, contact me on facebook, email me at cpetefantasyppr.com or follow me on twitter @FantasyPPRcpete.
