David Schuster

I have been covering the local sports scene for the last 30 years and in that time have seen more games and events then anybody. I’ve been privileged to have covered 9 local championships (6 by the Bulls, and one each by the Bears, White Sox & Blackhawks). I have also covered 3 no hitters and one perfect game and had the honor of covering the best basketball player ever on a daily basis. Not only do I love reporting on sports but I equally enjoy participating (Basketball, Baseball, Golf, Tennis…etc.) You name it and I love it. I’m a huge movie goer who also likes to travel and I own a piece of a local minor league baseball team as well as a piece of a local restaurant.

Schuster: Jordan Danks Fighting To Play With Older Brother

John and Jordan Danks are brothers separated by three years but they look like twins. Jordan is the baby of the two even though he is a few inches taller and about 30 pounds heavier. But the faces are carbon copies and both have that same Texas drawl.
