We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the teams they are most passionate about. There’s room to overview the previous seasons, preview the upcoming ones, or even discuss what it will take for the various teams to get on top. Or even just chipping in on game previews, recruitment recaps, roundtable discussions on staff about how each team should approach the offseason, or helping with a number of other potential story ideas, there could be a place for you here on the team.

Writers are asked to contribute 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We know that for most this is mostly a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too, as most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides sports, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about Louisville athletics and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged), a pertinent writing sample,  and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.

If you have any questions about the roles, please feel free to email our recruiting director, Kyle Franzoni, at kyle.franzoni@fansided.com with any questions.
