Get to Know WEGL's Sports Director!

Year: Junior

Major: Journalism

Position: Sports Director

How did you find out about WEGL? 

I found out about WEGL through Camp War Eagle. I spoke with former station manager Noah Gardner and former sports director Jared Dillard. I attended the first meeting of the school year and was hooked.

What made you want to apply for your position? 

I applied for sports director because I joined the sports department at its lowest point, and I have seen us prosper since then thanks to Jared. I want to make sure the hard work from everyone involved doesn’t go to waste.

Favorite WEGL Memory: 

My favorite memory at WEGL has to be The Xtra Point All-Star Game back in March. It was such a fun event that we put on with the Auburn Campus Rec and occurred just before COVID-19 changed everything. I’ll admit the best part of that event was Team Deavin coming out victorious after all the Team Jared hype.

Favorite Song Lyric

“I'll be up-up and away, up-up and away

'Cause they gon' judge me anyway

So, whatever” – Up Up & Away by Kid Cudi. 

These are my favorite lyrics, because it means to just be you and not to worry about what others think of you.

If you could listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? 

I would choose Astroworld by Travis Scott. I think this album is a great mix of mainstream and experimental songs with incredible production. I don’t feel the urge to click skip listening to this album.
