Bryan Jones (@BryanEJones23) — Writer
Bryan is a multi-platform journalism student at the University of Maryland, College Park. Despite being from the DMV, he is a fan of all Cleveland sports thanks to influence from his parents. Question my fandom, I still own a Brady Quinn jersey and will still root for the Cavs when LeBron leaves in 2018. I am a firm believer in analytics/saber metrics and believe that traits like “heart,” “winner,” and “clutch” do not exist.
