Chris Early

Contributing Author and Draft Analyst

Hello, I am The Earl. That is a nickname that I received over 15 years ago and my friends still call me that today. I am a graduate of Appalachian State University with a B.S. in Physics and a minor in mathematics. I am a husband and a father. I have been a fan of the Miami Dolphins for as long as I can remember. I am a fan of NASCAR and my favorite driver is Kasey Kahne. I also root for the Boston Red Sox, Appalachian State Mountaineers, and NC State Wolfpack basketball.

I am a contributing writer to The Phinsider a.k.a. the greatest Dolphins blog on the internet. I discovered The Phinsider via the old NFL app on Sprint phones back in 2009. I would read articles through that app, but only front page articles were available. I ventured onto the real site shortly thereafter and realized that it was a vibrant interactive community of Dolphins fans. On February 10, 2010 I joined the site.

Since that day, I have been an active member of the site. I was asked to be a contributing writer to the site in 2011. In 2012, fellow members of the site voted me into the Phinsider Hall of Fame. This is an honor that I appreciate very much. I enjoy writing about the Dolphins, but I enjoy discussing the Dolphins with fellow fans even more. I enjoy being a part of the Phinsider Podcast and the Friday Night Google+ Hangout
