BPSsports.com was founded by Boston-based freelance writer Justin A. Rice in the fall of 2009 to not only feature Boston Public School athletes and teams but also to provide an outlet for local college and high school students to gain valuable journalism experience.
A former staff reporter at the Boston Metro, Mr. Rice has written for several local papers including the Boston Globe. He has also worked in BPS schools through Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society. Mr. Rice completed a Master’s thesis about the boys basketball team at Boston English High–the first secondary-education school in the nation.
