I liked this profile on Jameis Winston by Sports Illustrated’s Andy Staples because of the structure. The first three paragraphs open with a similar statement, so it reads well. It’s also informative and explains the hype behind this talented athlete.
I liked this profile on Duke’s coach David Cutcliffe by Kevin Armstrong of New York Daily News because it takes a specific angle of how he helped mentor the Manning brothers. The lede is intriguing because it’s anecdotal. The profile is really detailed, and explains how things in his past affect his present work.
