    Where in the world do you live? I live in Central Pennsylvania. About 30 miles north of Harrisburg, PA

    What is your occupation?
    I work for a money order company. I'm sort of the jack of all trades. I have my hands in a little bit of everything. Most of it involves sitting at a desk all day

    Favorite sports teams?
    I'm mostly a football fan. I never miss an Eagles game even if I have to DVR it. I know this is going to sound strange but I'm a Flyers and Capitals fan. The reason I'm a Capitals fan is because I used to be a Hershey Bears season ticket holder. It's fun watching some of the guys go through the AHL and get their shot at the NHL.

    What hobbies do you have or what do you do for fun?
    Football, football football. I eat, drink, sleep football. I coach the local youth football team. I'm also the President of the organization.

    What other games do you enjoy outside of Madden?
    Right now I'm playing alot of The Division. I used to be into shooters but as I've gotten older and my reaction time has slowed down, I'm more of an RPG type player.

    Favorite movies?
    I'm a huge fan of comedy. The stupider, the better. The Jackass movies. It doesn't matter how many times I watch that, I can't stop laughing

    What would you like to see from H@W during the last few seasons of Madden 16?
    I'd like to see H@W stay right on track. I know a lot of people have been getting burnt out but I'm having a blast. I don't win a lot of games, but I don't care. I'm learning alot and having a good ol time.

    Anything else you would like to share? Let's see. I'm married with 2 kids. Those 2 little monster are in everything. We are always busy doing something. In the spring, it's soccer for both of them plus my daughter does gymnastics. The fall is really crazy. Both kids play soccer, I coach football, my daughter also does cheerleading and gymnastics. It gets a little hectic.

    Where in the world do you live?

    United State of 'Murica. I was born in Indianapolis and grew up in Tucson, AZ.

    What is your occupation?

    I'm an Operations Analyst. It's as boring as it sounds.

    Favorite sports teams?

    Indianapolis Colts. Arizona Wildcats. I have a rooting interest for the Cardinals just because they were the only team I could watch for 15 years. It helps that Bruce Arians has been such a big part of the Colts the last few decades, between helping Manning and Luck.

    What hobbies do you have or what do you do for fun?

    Games, movies, hanging out with friends. I use to be a bit of a wild child, but I've calmed down now that I've joined the corporate machine.

    What other games do you enjoy outside of Madden?

    All of them. But seriously, Dragon Age and Mass Effect games are near the top, along with Borderlands. I'm not much of a multiplayer anymore, but I did play WoW when I was younger and loved Black Ops 1 and 2. I'm a huge fan of the total war series and any strategy related game, especially an old fashioned match up of chess.

    Favorite movies?

    Fight Club, V for Vendetta, Best of the Best, Matrix (the first, not the trilogy), Mad Max, Expendables, The Departed, Boondock Saints, Shoot 'Em Up, Good Will Hunting, DEADPOOL and so many more.

    What would you like to see from H@W during the last few seasons of Madden 16?

    I would like to see Freakskull sing Gunther's ding dong song

    Where in the world do you live?
    Grew up in Houston, TX and recently lived there for another 2-3 years as an adult. Also lived in Chicago for ~9 years during & after college. Moved to Atlanta a little over a year ago for work.

    What is your occupation?

    I head up customer analytics for a national retailer.

    Favorite sports teams?

    Texans, Rockets. Definitely a hardcore X's & O's football geek/junkie.

    What hobbies do you have or what do you do for fun?
    Gaming of all kinds for as long as I can remember. Also play guitar, basketball, tennis, and with a little puppy.

    What other games do you enjoy outside of Madden?
    Strategy games (turn-based & real-time) are my wheelhouse: Starcraft, Civilization. Heroes of the Storm. Elder Scrolls Online. Used to play FPS super competitively (led a team, structured practices, invite-only leagues, etc.) years ago when I had much more time. Also played around in the MMO/raiding world for a while (Lord of the Rings Online).

    Favorite movies?

    Indiana Jones, Star Wars

    What would you like to see from H@W during the last few seasons of Madden 16?

    Activity.

    Anything else you'd like to share?
    Not that I'm the best player around, but for anyone with a losing record, I'm happy to share some tips. They may not instantaneously lead to supreme Madden domination, since I don't focus too much on specific plays, but long-term they will help. I can share how I approach the game philosophically & strategically, which I feel is the primary reason I win games. One of these days I may try to host a defensive clinic like Keller once did for offense, for teams ~below .500 in non-simmed games. I'm one step too competitive to just show already strong players how to beat me. :)

    Hard to get a short list, but I would say the most influential movies I have seen: Forrest Gump, Martyrs, Boondock Saints. Inception and Shutter Island were great too. I really connect with the Marvel Universe too, especially Iron Man. I thought they were fantastic. Too Many more to list.

    New members having a good time. The evolution of the H@W Brand: Fun fair and realistic football gaming. No Drama, lots of content and fun.

    Favorite movies?
    The Big Lebowski, Forrest Gump, and Tommy Boy
    What would you like to see from H@W during the last few seasons of Madden 16?
    Just keep chugging along. H@W is a different type of league than the norm is looking for; with the longer advance, the sim season, and the expectations of the league itself. It takes a certain type of person to want to play in this league and a gameplay that allows them to stay. So at 25? 26? right now, we are alright.
