Sports Editor, Turley Publications

A lifelong sports fan, Dave figured a career covering sports would be the next best thing to playing them. The Westfield resident joined the Turley team in April 2007, but brought seven years experience in journalism. His favorite assignments have included covering the Tantasqua boys’ varsity basketball team during the 2006-2007 season, not to mention the 2003 New England Patriots Super Bowl Championship parade and the 2004 Boston Red Sox World Championship parade, and having the opportunity to cover the Ware football team when they won the Super Bowl in 2011, along with covering all of the Western Massachusetts High School Basketball Tournament action at the Curry Hicks Cage at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.┬áDave is a 2000 graduate of Westfield State College with a major in Communication.
