Kevin Nesgoda

Managing Editor (He's our version of Dean Wormer)

Kevin has been a sports fanatic his entire life. He grew up loving the Sonics, Mariners and Philadelphia Eagles. Kevin’s true heart and passion lie with the Maryland Terrapin basketball team and he cries over the football team. Unlike Bill Simmons, Kevin uses a Macbook Pro to write his columns and not a broken down Lenovo Thinkpad.
