After conducting several interviews last week, AllHoosiers.com is proud to announce our four interns for the upcoming 2014-15 school year.
The four are all Indiana University students. Sam Rumpza, Stuart Jackson, Ben Faunce and Sarah Beeson will be joining AllHoosiers.com's full-time staff members Terry Hutchens and Justin Albers to provide comprehensive coverage of the IU athletics beat for the coming season.
Sam Rumpza, who will be a junior at IU this fall, will be our primary football and basketball intern. Sam attended Lafayette Jeff High School where he worked on the school newspaper for four years. He had an internship with WNDE radio in Indianapolis and will be the co-Sports Director at WIUX, the IU student radio station in the fall. We expect Sam to pick right up where Nathan Brown left on in this position last semester.
Stuart Jackson, who will also be a junior at IU this fall, will be our men's soccer beat writer and also help out as a backup with football and basketball. Stuart was the women's basketball beat writer last semester for the Indiana Daily Student and was supposed to be men's soccer beat writer for the IDS this fall. He attended Carmel High School and was sports editor of his high school newspaper. He's going to bring quality coverage to IU men's soccer for AllHoosiers.com.
Normally we would have stopped at two writing interns but Ben Faunce had an interest in covering recruiting and so he will step into that role for us for both football and basketball. Ben wrote for the IU media relations website this summer and worked on his high school newspaper at Marmion Academy in Aurora, Ill. He'll also do some backup football and basketball. Ben will give AllHoosiers.com some much needed depth.
Finally, our video intern for this year who will take the place of Nolan Blair is Sarah Beeson. Sarah is a senior at IU majoring in Sports Communication, specializing in Broadcast with minors in Telecommunications and Journalism. She is from the Philadelphia suburbs. This summer she is interning at Hurricane Junior Golf Tour in Jacksonville, Fla. as the Video Productions intern. She conducts post-tournament interviews and uses footage to create highlight, champion interviews and promotional videos. Sarah will be joining our AllHoosiers.com team on Aug. 20.
We're looking forward to a great year with a solid group of interns.
