Dillon Giancola writes sports and community stories for the Alaska Highway News and Dawson Creek Mirror. Growing up in small-town Alberta, he spent time in Edmonton and Brantford before coming to Fort St. John. He loves all things sports, books, music, TV and board games.

From slow pitch, to hockey, and disc golf to lacrosse, he loves keeping his communities informed on what is happening in the local sports world, and likes to tell inspiring community stories in general. Keep an eye out as well for the odd rant about the Los Angeles Rams and his extreme fandom.
