Kobi Azoulay is a graduate from Linganore High School’s class of 2014. He discovered his passion for journalism his senior year of high school, and he hasn’t looked back since.
After winning two Fredrick News-Post Mike Powell Excellence in Journalism awards his first semester writing, Azoulay realized that writing was something he could make a career out of one day. A Sophomore Journalism major at Salisbury University, he has written over 20 newspaper articles for their student newspaper. He plans on continuing writing for the newspaper throughout his time at Salisbury.
He has been passionate about sports his entire life. Basketball and baseball are the sports he has the most personal experience with, but he also has extensive knowledge of football as well.
While Azoulay is new to writing sports articles, he is not new to sports journalism. He has a radio show called “The News and Sports Report” on Salisbury’s student radio station where he analyzes the week’s most pressing national sports stories.
His focus for Maryland Sports Access will be mainly Redskins, Wizards, and Orioles, the teams he’s most passionate about, but he hopes to diversify more in the future.
