John Bean is a freshman at the University of Missouri. That’s right, the one and only Mizzou. John is from St. Charles, Illinois and hopes to become a sportswriter someday. John is loyal to his Chicago teams and to answer everyone’s question, he prefers the White Sox over the Cubs. He is also a huge NASCAR fan and attends the spring races at Talladega Superspeedway every year. John is currently writing articles for the Mizzou Sports Writers Promotion Association (MSPA), so he can get one step closer to his dream job.
