English 103: Writing Portfolio

Briggs Lynn Orsbon

            I am from Convoy, Ohio where I have lived my entire life.  It’s a small “village” thirty minutes east of Ft. Wayne, IN and it’s right off U.S. 30.  I have one older brother named Levi, who attends IPFW.  I love anything to do with sports and outdoor activities, like snowboarding.  However, I also enjoy watching all types of movies and hanging out with my friends and family.  

            I graduated from high school third in my class, which consisted of only eighty-two people.  I’m currently a freshman at Ball State University where I’m a Business major.  I also play wide receiver on Ball State’s football team.  As for the future, I plan to pursue a career in the financial or insurance field with the degree I receive.

Football Update

The Ball State football team and myself had a splendid season.  We finished the season with an undefeated record of 12-0, while claiming the MAC West Division Championship.  I got a lot of playing time for my first year here and can't wait until the upcoming bowl game that we will be participating in.  This season we qualified for the GMAC bowl, which is in Mobile, Alabama and will be played January 6th at 8 p.m.
