Sarah Hoover, writer
Sarah’s sports fandom is all over the map, from her hometown ASU Sun Devils to her maternal grandfather’s beloved Green Bay Packers. Raised on baseball, but with no professional team in Arizona, she was hungry to adopt a local team when she moved to Davis, CA in 1999. She encountered the Orange & Black and never looked back. She spends the offseason distracting herself with every other sport possible, counting down the days until the Giants return to Scottsdale each spring.
A 2012 UC Davis grad, Sarah has worked for the Cal Aggie Alumni Association and for Capital Public Radio, and now works in Events and Entertainment for the Sacramento River Cats. She is currently applying to graduate programs in Sports Management, and hopes to make a career in sports marketing and community relations.
Josh Schiesl, writer, artist extraordinaire
Josh Schiesl studied Mechanical Engineering at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, then moved to the good old city of Pleasanton where he lives with his wife and daughter and works as a Project Manager. Josh originally hails from Iowa, where he used to eat his weight in corn every day and religiously followed the Cubs, Blackhawks, Bears, and Hawkeyes. As a Chicago sports fan he knows the pain of loss but forever keeps hope in “next year.” He is also a recent self-ascribed Warriors fan and it has nothing to do with their 22 game (and counting at this time) win streak.
