Benjamin Hoppe, Co-Editor in Chief

Hi everyone. I am Benjamin Hoppe, a senior, and co-editor in chief. In case you have been living under a rock, my favorite thing in the whole wide world is tennis (just take a look at what the common theme in most of my stories is). It is my fourth year on staff so I've had the opportunity to write plenty of tennis stories. When I’m not playing tennis or watching Formula 1 Racing, you can find me training to be first at the Oktoberfest Bike ride. This year varsity tennis is winning SPC Champions courtesy of muah in honor of Mr. Sil’s 5-year plan. You will also catch me taking over Andrea’s and Chris’s job of yelling “hey freshmen” every other Thursday. Kachowwww!
