This year the Walter Cronkite Sports Network will be covering Arizona State soccer as one of its numerous expansion sports.
I’d like to introduce myself as the soccer editor. My name is Mauricio Casillas, and I will be producing written content, video content, and serving as a broadcaster for Pac-12 webcasts (a product created in conjunction between ASU Athletics and WCSN).
Last year our soccer coverage was lack luster to say the least. We produced five soccer articles total, and our coverage was very inconsistent. I know for a fact that this year will be better. It is our goal to deliver the best ASU soccer coverage that you can find.
I’m thrilled about expanding our soccer coverage because I know that this team deserves more coverage. It will be my job to make sure that WCSN produces the best, most in-depth, and important articles. If you would like to ask me any questions or if you have suggestions for me, please feel free to contact me anytime (see below).
My number one goal is delivering the coverage that you the fans of collegiate soccer deserve. Our content will include game previews, game recaps, and feature stories. All of this will give you an insider’s look, with player interviews and coach interviews as well as an acute breakdown of statistical significance. It it also my goal to really focus on producing more video content. We want fans, parents and students to really get to know this Sun Devil soccer team.
While it is true that WCSN is stationed out of Arizona State and consists of ASU student journalists, CronkiteSports.com will not represent a P.R. operation of Arizona State soccer. Our coverage of the team will strive always to be fair, unbiased, and hard-hitting or critical when necessary.
Some of our coverage will be serious, while other pieces may be fun and quirky. If you have any suggestions for articles you’d like to see written or angles that you would like to see taken, let me know! Any and all ideas, suggestions, feedback, or criticism are taken and considered.
I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on Twitter (@maucasillas94).
Thank you all. I cannot wait to start working with this soccer team, and I’m confident that WCSN will be able to deliver consistently excellent coverage of Arizona State soccer.
