Mike Thompson, Jr. created SportsInFairfax.org after he joined the Fairfax County Athletic Council. As Mike became more and more involved in a variety of community activities, it has become a resource for information about various topics. The site was relaunched in January 2017 when Mike invited a broad array of people to become regular contributors.
