I hope all our subscribers and visitors will join me in welcoming Chris Hathaway to UConnPlaybook.com. Chris is going to be on the site as our intern for the Winter 2012 academic semester.
You may have already noticed his name on the site. He contributed some quotes to stories last week after the West Virginia game. And Tuesday he had his first byline on this feature about Kiah Stokes of the women's basketball. If you haven't already, check it out. It's a good read on the freshman center.
Chris is a junior at nearby Nichols College. He is majoring in sports management. We met at one of my book signings last fall and he approached me about an internship position. We made it work and I'm happy to have him on board. With Chris on the staff we can bring you even more content. Chris will be working with me on our coverage of Paul Pasqualoni's first full recruiting class at UConn. And, of course, our national and regional recruiting experts are already filing pieces daily on football and basketball recruiting news.
Chris is a great guy. He's new to the site but he has been following UConn athletics with his family members for years. He is not a Husky Newbie. Make him feel comfortable.
Don't forget to follow Chris (@ChrisHath15) and myself (@Kendavis55) on Twitter for news from games and practices. Of course, you can always find us here.
