I went into sports journalism because I love sports, and I always thought it would be awesome to be surrounded by the best athletes in the world  is awesome. At the age of 11, it was an opportunity to be a sports journalist. And I wrote and article for SI for Kids and I go chosen out of no where. In what ever I do, I do my best. It is amazing. I had the time of my life doing it, said Bonnstetter.

Bonnstetter has been in the national spotlight before. He was a guest on the Tonight Show and got a chance to interview Kobe Bryant.

Just as long as it is sports related, he is happy to be part of the business.
