Gophers fans, I’m very excited to share my new project with you!
Today, I’m launching GophersGuru.com, your new home for premium Gopher Football and University of Minnesota sports content.
For $5 a month, you will receive subscriber exclusive content, including film breakdowns, analytics pieces, features, exclusive videos and so much more. Initially, I will be primarily focusing on football coverage.
Gophers Guru is ad-free and delivers unique and innovative content you can’t find anywhere else. The website is also optimized for mobile phones to create a seamless user experience.
With everything going on due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this website is a way for me to keep doing what I love every day. There is nothing I enjoy more than bringing all of you closer to the teams you support. My mission is to teach you new things about the game I love.
Ever since I can remember, football has been my passion. My elementary school career folder always had “sports journalist” written on it. At a young age, I watched college or professional games, wrote post game stories and shared them with my family.
I also started learning the X’s and O’s while helping the high school football team in second grade. While working around the program, I soaked in all of the football information. The football coach always encouraged me to combine my passion for writing and football.
In 2012, I came home from school and launched my own website, Vikings Corner. As a 16-year- old, I began producing innovative Minnesota Vikings content, including film breakdowns, features and news articles. I covered training camp, the NFL Draft and Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. Eight years later, “VC” is still going strong! While developing Vikings Corner, I also wrote weekly fantasy football rankings for Paul Charchian at LeagueSafe.com.
A few years after launching VC, I attended the University of Minnesota and started covering the Gopher football and basketball programs. In 2016, my collegiate writing journey began with 24/7 Sports. I wrote freelance game stories and recruiting articles for the network. In 2017, I joined GopherHole.com and became the website’s football and basketball analyst. I produced extensive football breakdowns, including schematic and analytics pieces. During my time with GH, I covered hundreds of games, including two NCAA Basketball Tournament regionals and the Final Four in Minneapolis.
While working for GopherHole, I also became the Gopher Football analyst for SKOR North. I handled all of the website’s college football coverage. I was also a frequent guest on the SKOR North Gophers Show and GopherHole podcasts. I graduated from the University of Minnesota’s Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication in 2019.
I’ve particularly enjoyed connecting with all of you through my content. For a very long time, I’ve had this Gophers Guru vision in my mind. Now, I’m ready to put the plan into motion. An all-access subscription will include a variety of new content surprises! I guarantee you won’t want to miss out.
My goal is to make you the most educated and informed Gopher fan possible. Every day, I will work toward that mission.
I can’t possibly produce unique and innovative content without your continued support. Please click here to subscribe now! I appreciate all of you and can’t wait to interact through my content.
See you soon!
