Eleven Warriors is hiring a second beat writer. Is that writer you?

Two years ago, we asked for your help hiring a full-time beat writer for the site. You graciously stepped up, made it happen and Kyle's outstanding work has been a big part of why we're here today, still growing, and looking to add a second writer to the Ohio State beat.

Is that writer you?

In short, we're looking for someone to own the Ohio State basketball beat, while contributing to coverage of other sports, including football.
