SAN ANTONIO – In mid-February, I interviewed Shea Serrano, a best-selling author and sportswriter who grew up and still lives in San Antonio.

We spoke about a $20,000 scholarship he and his wife Larami had just founded to help Latinx students pursuing a journalism degree.

The scholarship, which was donated to the San Antonio Association of Hispanic Journalists, is called the Shea Serrano “Shoot Your Shot Scholarship.”

The phrase is a nod to the advice Serrano has given to his more than 370,000 followers on Twitter.

Naturally, if you have Shea on the phone, you shoot your shot and ask about a variety of other things.

We discussed the Spurs, working for the Ringer, podcasts and his new project, which he had just announced that morning titled, “Where do you think we are? Ten Illustrated Essays About Scrubs.”

I then asked about his ever-loyal fanbase, affectionately known as the “FOH Army.” FOH being an acronym similar to “GTFO."
