I’m Andrew Roberts, a class of 2026 Park Scholar at Ithaca College and Flutie Fellow for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. I have been writing my blog, Boston Sports Mania since 2014. This blog is mainly for sports coverage but includes some other things about my life as it relates to sports. In 2017, I began posting video posts (vlogs) in addition to written posts (blogs).

I have been a big sports fan, especially a Red Sox fan since I was 5. I was even a junior announcer for NESN at a Red Sox game in the 2009 season.  My video of saying the lineup is on YouTube. The same year, I said Play Ball at Fenway to start the game.

I hope to become a professional sports journalist once I graduate college, but my many sportscasting experiences to date and my work on this website have given me a great start.

Some of my experiences I am most proud of include

Outside of this blog, I really like watching and talking about sports as well as playing fantasy sports.  I follow the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, and NCAA, and play tennis and ski.

I was diagnosed with PDD/NOS when I was 2 and doctors said I may never speak (I have since been re-diagnosed with Asperger’s).  But thanks to my early interest in letters and numbers and help from the New England Center for Children (NECC.org), I began talking and reading by age 3 and have continued to make progress ever since.  I’m an aspiring sports journalist who just happens to be autistic.
