Roger worked as a sports reporter for the Worthington Daily Globe from 1986-2001.  In 1987 Bill Brower, the sports editor, asked Roger to cover the high school gymnastics beat.  He was not excited about it but quickly developed a passion for the sport.  He not only covered gymnastics for the Globe, but became a fixture at many practices and meets and became the Trojans #1 fan.  Roger suffered a stroke in December of 2001 which ended his writing for the Globe, but he continues to support the gymnastics program with the same passion as before. He was inducted into the Trojan Hall of Fame in 2009.
