Hey everyone! My name is Connor Healy, and I’m a junior History Education major. I’m hoping to teach high school, though I’m planning on doing the 4+1 Master’s program here at App State once I graduate with my Bachelor’s degree.
I’m really looking forward to this class, as I am a sports fanatic. My two favorite sports are baseball and ice hockey, but I know a bit about the NFL and soccer as well. Don’t ask me anything about basketball, it’s not my cup of tea.
I think one of the most interesting things in this class is how sports and history can come together as an actual type of history: Sports History. I have never heard of this area of history before this class, and I am definitely going to do more research on the discipline as a whole as this class goes on.
