My name is Craig Brueske, and I'm a Patch Correspondent who will help cover the high school sports scene in the Tri-Cities this year. My wife, Dawn, and I have been married for 23 years, and have four children - two of which are graduates of St. Charles East High School. We have lived in St. Charles for 22 years and both of us love the Fox River area. I served as a Sports Editor with several suburban newspapers for 22 years, covering Batavia, Geneva, St. Charles East, St. Charles North, Marmion, Aurora Central Catholic, Aurora Christian, and Rosary, and I am currently in my 27th year of sportswriting. For the past three-plus years, I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for the New Pathways program (autistic kids) with Mid-Valley Special Education at Munhall School in St. Charles. During my spare time, I enjoy coaching my kids' baseball and softball teams, attending movies and playing Fantasy sports.
