A LOT OF people dream big. Few achieve their goals.
Ray Didinger, TU class of '68, is living the dream. And he'll tell you all about it in class on Thursday, March 27.
As a child growing up in Southwest Philly and nearby Delaware County, Didinger idolized the Philly sports teams. As a kid, he went to an Eagles training camp, saw the sportswriters out on the field, and he decided that was what he wanted to do.
After completing his journalism degree at Temple, he landed a job as an Eagles beat writer. Then he became a columnist. He traveled around the world documenting sports, and life in general. Then he left newspapers to craft long-form documentary films for NFL Films. He still does that. And he appears on Comcast SportsNet's Daily News Live program occasionally, and after every Eagles' game on the Eagles Post-game Live show.
He has also authored several books, with the most recent one published last fall.
