The people behind the product.
founder & writer
Daniel House has covered football in the Twin Cities market for the past eight years. While in
high school, he founded his own website, Vikings Corner. In June of 2012, House began
producing innovative Minnesota Vikings content, including film breakdowns, features and news
articles. He covered training camp, the NFL Draft and Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. After
continuing to build the website’s brand, “VC” became one of the top Vikings blogs in the market.
A few years after launching Vikings Corner, House attended the University of Minnesota and
started covering the Gopher football and basketball programs. In 2016, his collegiate writing
journey began with 24/7 Sports. House wrote freelance game stories and recruiting articles for
the network. In 2017, he joined GopherHole.com and became the website’s football and
basketball analyst. He produced extensive football breakdowns, including schematic and
analytics pieces. During his time with GH, House covered hundreds of games, including two
NCAA Basketball Tournament regionals and the Final Four in Minneapolis.
While working for GopherHole, House also became the Gopher Football analyst for SKOR
North. He handled all of the website’s college football coverage. House was also a frequent
guest on the SKOR North Gophers Show and GopherHole podcasts.
House graduated from the University of Minnesota’s Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass
Communication in 2019. He is now using the skills he learned to launch his latest business,
GophersGuru.com. The website produces premium Gopher Football and University of
Minnesota sports content. A subscription gives fans access to schematic breakdowns, features,
data-driven pieces, recruiting analysis, exclusive videos and so much more. Gophers Guru
provides passionate Gopher fans with analysis and content they can’t find anywhere else.
Website Design & Development
Rece Dietrich has been in the website design and development game since early in high school. His first project came when he redesigned a local church’s website from scratch using an old military laptop and some basic design software. This first opened Rece’s eyes to how much he enjoyed creating something and seeing it through from start to finish.
About four years ago, Rece created Daniel’s personal website. The goal of the website was to help allow Daniel’s brand to grow and a place for his content to call home.
Fast forward to present and Rece is now graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and two minors in Marketing and Political Science. As the real world has now become a reality, Rece is pursuing opportunities, like we have here with Gophers Guru, to sharpen his skills.
