“After 14 years on the Rivals Network, I have decided it was time for BeaverBlitz.com to join forces with the Scout network,” Machado said. “This decision came after a lot of thought and deliberation, but the opportunity for our members to receive insights from some of the most respected and connected recruiting analysts in the industry along with the strength of the Scout network, especially on the West Coast and in the PAC 12 made this an easy decision in the end. I am thrilled for this new opportunity and am energized for the future of BeaverBlitz and Scout.”
BeaverBlitz.com publishes daily content related to Oregon State athletics including team coverage, in-depth recruiting analysis, video features, and more. The Lodge message board forum is noted for behind the scenes insight, insider information and lively discussion.
"My favorite thing about this business is getting to work with people who are passionate about their work," said Joel Cox, EVP of Scout. "This business, at it's core, is about providing die-hard fans with the best information, and no one does this any better than Angie. I've been working toward getting Angie and her team to Scout for five or six years, and thankfully, she finally agreed.”
“For Angie, it was all about making sure that she was doing right by her loyal subscribers. Marrying this extremely loyal fan base with Angie's indefatigable work ethic, and Scout's experienced recruiting makes for a very exciting product for subscribers. I'm over the moon that she is joining us,” Cox added. “Angie doesn't come to decisions quickly or without careful thought so I feel grateful that she is coming aboard. It's a terrific endorsement of our business."
The BeaverBlitz team will include: Baseball Analyst Jeff Perry, Beat Writer Brian Rathbone, Football Analyst Peter Riley Osborne, Writer Raju Woodward, and Recruiting Writer/Moderator Adam Nicholson, among others.
“I honestly believe our subscribers are the ones who win the most from this move as the level of quality information that they are accustomed to seeing will only get better,” Machado said. “If you were a member of our site on Rivals, I hope that you will join us on Scout. If you’ve never subscribed to BeaverBlitz.com, now is a great time for you to give us a try for the football season.”
“As I mentioned, having the opportunity to work with some of the most respected analysts in the business was a major catalyst for this move,” Machado said. “In the West, Brandon Huffman and Greg Biggins are two guys that I am beyond excited to work with and have share their great knowledge with the BeaverBlitz community.”
“I’ve known Angie for several years and have seen her work from afar and know that nobody knows Oregon State athletics or covers it like Angie has at BeaverBlitz,” Huffman said. “ She and her staff are a tremendous addition to Scout and continue to solidify Scout’s stranglehold on the West and Pac-12 market. I am thrilled to have her over at Scout and to work with her and her staff to continue to bring BeaverBlitz subscribers the best in Beaver sports and recruiting coverage.”
Added Biggins: "I couldn't be more excited to have BeaverBlitz as a part of the Scout network. Angie Machado has been a longtime friend and someone I've admired in this business for years. She completely owns the Oregon State market and takes our coverage of the Pac-12 to another level. You won't find anyone more passionate or who works harder than Angie and her staff and I can't wait for the opportunity to work alongside her moving forward. This was a huge home run hire for the entire Scout network!"
