The Boy Who Cried Dead Girlfriend

Ned Zeman’s profiling of Te’ogate looks deeply into Te’o’s evolution as a football player, a fallen hero, and a human being. Zeman’s use of the four acts chronicles how the public’s perception of Te’o changed as information came forth, and the denouement, when Te’o is seen as a victim, is a sorrowfully beautiful close to the whole mess. Zeman wrote not only a great sports article, but, also, a great human interest feature and an interesting narrative.
