Gregg Doyel
Indy Star sports columnist. Dad of two great young men, Macon and Jackson. Was 4-0 as an amateur boxer, with 3 KO's, then came out of retirement to fight UFC veteran Chris Lytle. Lost badly. You know, 4-1 just doesn't look as good. Love dogs, like cats, won't kill bugs. Will instead grab them off my floor and put them outside. Give me a sports subject who needs a good columnist kick in the rear end and I'm there, but I can't end a granddaddy longlegs' one shot at life by showing it the bottom of my shoe. Born in Hawaii, childhood in Norman, Okla., and Oxford, Miss., high school in Macon, Ga. All-state in baseball and soccer. Still bragging about it all these years later. College at University of Florida. Wrote journalism and sold plasma for meal money. Tampa Tribune (covered high school sports), Miami Herald (Marlins), Charlotte Observer (ACC), (hate mail), Indy Star (as much as I can). Important to me: Raising ALS awareness. Teachers. Hospice care. Veterans. Rock Steady Boxing. Phoenix Society. Kids. Bald.
