Congratulations to Nick Creegan of White Plains, N.Y., who was crowned as the #AOLSportsSearch winner on Wednesday evening!
After sitting through live auditions and winning multiple challenges -- both serious and hilarious -- over the course of the last three days, Nick, 23, will be the host of a future show on AOL Sports.
MEET NICK CREEGAN
HOMETOWN: White Plains, New York
COLLEGE: SUNY Albany ('13)
MAJOR: Communications and Journalism
FAVORITE SPORT: Football
QUOTE: "The only thing I really connected with as a young kid was sports because my grandfather was my best friend. We'd watch football every Sunday – and he'd quiz me on football knowledge while reading the newspaper. I got involved with stats and I was always a fierce debater when it came to sports."
And now, you can get to know Nick even more in the coming months on AOL.com. Stay tuned for future programming notes. Be sure to follow us on Twitter: @AOLSports
