Grayson Weir
A senior this year, Grayson Weir ’14 joins Inklings with hopes of being as successful
a reporter as he is a volleyball player.
Although volleyball is his sport of choice, Weir broadened his horizons by watching
football and basketball as well. For Weir, a moment that rivals the thought of spiking a
winning shot on the court is getting a sports story of his published. Last year, he did just
that, on a sports website The Bleacher Report.
No stranger to challenges of all kinds, Weir was faced with a new game this past
summer— chasing chickens on a farm in Louisiana as a summer job.
“It was a huge culture shock from living in New England my whole life,” said Weir.
Despite his initial shock, Weir confesses he actually learned a thing or two about the
way his dinner gets to the table each night.
As taxing as running after farm animals were, this job definitely prepared him for
the tough preseason he came home to, as well as helped him fine tune the patience skills
necessary when covering a story. With some undeniably crazy experiences under his belt,
this year Weir said he is ready to tackle any story thrown his way
