Sports Editor - ZU News

Cole is a Sophomore at APU, majoring in journalism and minoring in public relations. He is an avid sports fan, and his favorite teams are the San Jose Earthquakes, Boston Celtics, and Los Angeles Chargers. Don't worry, he is aware that none of those teams have any connection whatsoever. Although he was born and raised in the country, he cannot stand country music, and much prefers hard rock music. With a dry sense of humor and firmly-held opinions that have little to no factual foundation, he is always ready for a heated debate about almost anything in the world of sports.
