I participated in Cross Examination Debate all 4 years of my high school career. I qualified for the stater competition in a very competitive 1a district and finished at State Runner Up in 2008.

Judging Philosophy


Rounds judged: 0
Judging approach: stock issues
Policy priority: Communication Communication skills are more important than resolution of substantive issues
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: I am a major stock issues judge. I cannot vote for a negative team unless they clearly defeat the affirmative team on one of the stock issues. You will not win a round from simply bringing up an argument, you must have a clear take out on the stock issue. I am a fan of topicality arguments and think all negative teams should run at least one each round. I WILL NOT vote for off the wall DA's!
