John Doublin

John was raised a Navy brat. In 1973 he witnessed his first Raider practice. Once Otis Sistrunk signed his hat, he became a card-carrying member of Raider Nation for life. A promising athletic career was cut short when he was diagnosed with a congenital bone disease. His football coach asked him to help out and John was bitten by the coaching bug. After several years of coaching baseball and football at every level up to high school, John began to explore writing, beginning as a contributor on RaiderNews.com in 2009. In less than a year at BleacherReport.com, John became an internationally syndicated writer with credits that include; USAToday.com, CBSSports.com, SFGate.com (San Francisco Chronicle on line) and several international sites, along with being a top 10 NFL writer and the top Oakland Raiders correspondent. John's style could be best described as a coach's perspective with a fan's mindset. Agree or not, you're sure to appreciate his work. Follow John on Twitter: http://twitter.com/CoachJayDee
