Tom LaMarre - Contributor

Tom LaMarre has been a sportswriter and copy editor in California for parts of five decades, including 15 years with the Oakland Tribune and 22 with the Los Angeles Times. He was the Tribune's beat writer for the Oakland Raiders for seven seasons in the 1970s, highlighted by their 32-14 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and collaborated on a book, Winning Offensive Football, with quarterback Ken Stabler. He also covered the Oakland Athletics when they won three consecutive World Series in the 1970s and the Golden State Warriors when they won the NBA championship in 1974. With the Times, he wrote columns on golf, football and skiing.

He attended the University of San Francisco when the Dons were still a basketball power, and his golf idol growing up in Oakland was the late Tony Lema, who attended the same high school - St. Elizabeth's in Oakland.
