|Michael Stern: Stern (@michaeljstern23) is a sophomore studying journalism. Born in Iowa, he moved to southern California (Irvine to be exact) in the summer of 2002 and has been a sports fan ever since. He’s been following the Angels since their 2002 World Series run, and is also a fan of the Lakers. Michael hopes to work in sports journalism someday, either as a baseball play-by-play announcer or as a reporter/columnist. Michael is not related to David Stern, so don’t blame him for the potential fixing of the NBA Draft Lottery or playoffs. He does have a younger sister, Sarah, a high school senior famous for frequently contending in the family March Madness bracket challenge despite selecting her winners based on their team mascots.
Josh Burton: Burton (@Josh_Burton1) is a freshman studying journalism and economics. He’s a native of the New York City suburbs and is an ardent fan of the Nets, Mets, Jets and Devils. His first foray into sports journalism was with a Nets blog (BrooklynBalling.com) he started in 10th grade that got him interested in covering sports as more than just a fan. Also, he does realize he happened to pick some of the more painful teams in professional sports to root for. Don’t blame him, blame his dad and grandpa.
Ryan Fish: Fish (@RyanMFish) is a sophomore from Orland Park, Illinois, studying journalism. Along with being a globally renowned dancer and poet, Fish enjoys watching and playing basketball in his free time. He is a movie enthusiast and long-suffering Cubs fan (#WorldSeries2K15). Fish also enjoys writing and covering Northwestern athletics, while he particularly dislikes pickles, long lines at Chipotle and the Green Bay Packers.
|Will Greer: Greer (@willy_nillie) is a freshman, majoring in journalism, from the United States’ only city with a metropolitan whitewater river: Richmond, Virginia. Greer is a huge fan of both college and pro sports, with his favorite teams often losing more games than they win. His strong character comes from years of heartbreak, most notably from the Minnesota Timberwolves, Chicago Cubs and Virginia Cavaliers. Greer is also a member of NNN Sportsnight at Northwestern, where he produces visual sports journalism. He wants to be a basketball or baseball play-by-play broadcaster.
|Max Gelman: Gelman (@MaxGelman) is a freshman studying journalism, and is considering a double-major in economics. He was born in Manhattan but grew up in Montclair, New Jersey, about half an hour from New York City. Max is a hopelessly optimistic fan of the New York Mets and New York Jets, and one day hopes his teams can climb out of the shadows of the juggernaut Yankees and Giants. Why he chose to root for the second-rate teams of New York is one of the greatest mysteries to all mankind.

|Alex Lederman: Lederman, a sophomore majoring in journalism, is a lifelong Mets, Jets and Knicks fan who decided his existence wasn’t tortured enough, so he added Northwestern to the list. He enjoys screaming at his television when everything inevitably goes wrong with his teams and believes he’ll die young from the stress they cause. At NU, he studies journalism and political science and also works for The Daily Northwestern, Northwestern News Network, BTN Plus and WNUR News. He doesn’t sleep very much.
