My name is David Briggs. I am a Colorado Avalanche contributor. I was born and raised in Denver, CO. I have been an avid hockey follower since I can remember. I have an affinity for writing about sports, specifically hockey. I wrote sports columns in high school for the school paper and I used to write for americanjuniorhockey.com, covering specifically the Cheyenne Stampede. I have a degree in Broadcast News from the University of Colorado. Go Buffs. Currently, I am the Stage Director for the daytime talk show "Daily Blast Live" and I call play-by-play for high school sports in the Denver area. I worked for "Around the Horn" on ESPN for four years as a Production Assistant for Woody Paige in Denver.
