    Name: Ryan
    Age: 21
    Gamertag/PSN (please state whether its PS or XBOX): Dreamforger69 (XBOX360)
    AIM/YIM/Skype/ICQ:
    Time Zone: Central (Texas)
    General Availability for User vs User games: I'm generally open after 4 or 5 pm, and some days earlier. I'm a college student so I have a pretty flexible schedule.
    Favorite Teams: Green Bay Packers (first ever football game I watched), Texas A&M Aggies (college I attend), Virginia Tech Hokies (always been a fan of Beamer ball)
    How did you hear about Tradition Football: My roommate just informed me about Tradition Football. Said it's a great online community to play sports games.

    1. Have you ever played in any online leagues? What kind (NCAA, Madden, Forza, NBA, etc)? Where?
    I've played in online dynasties filled with friends from high school in college for NCAA 11 and 12.

    2. How long have you been playing video games? How long have you been playing online?
    I've been playing video games since I was 7, and I've been playing online since 2006 or 2007.

    3. What type of player would you say you are?
    I'm a casual/hardcore gamer. But I know how to take a loss, I enjoy playing football games online that resembles real football. I'm a big fan of realistic gaming, playing against a cheeser is frustrating.

    4. Our community consists of a more mature bunch and the average age is somewhere around 28-30 years old. How do you feel about any differences or similarities between our population and your age?
    I'm a little bit younger than the average age in this community, but I usually hang out with people a few years older than me. I really think having a more mature gaming environment would contribute to a better overall experience.

    5. Have you read the rules and general gameplay guidelines? Any questions or concerns?
    I have read the rules and gameplay guidelines, and they are the main reason I think this community would be great to join. Realistic gaming and good sportsmanship. I don't think I have any questions/concerns at the moment other than I like to run the football more than pass, though I do pass some. I just value a strong running game, but I definitely can switch it up if it's a problem for the league.

    6. Please tell us a little about yourself. We want to get to know you and hope that you will be around for a long time.
    I'm a senior Biomedical Science major at Texas A&M University. I plan to get a Masters in Biotechnology from the same university. I really am fascinated by genetics. I grew up in Longview, TX. I played football from middle school all the way through high school. I played three different positions my senior year (TE, DT, LG). Granted they were at different times in the year and based on team needs, but I looked at it as an opportunity to learn more about the game I love. Recently I've started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and it's a great yet humbling experience. I have an Olde English Bulldogge named Favre, after my favorite player to ever play the game. Even if he did some shameful things later on in life. It hurt to root against Favre when he played the Packers, but team loyalty is greater than player loyalty in my book.

    7. Fitting into the community is vital to the experience here at TSO. How do you see yourself fitting into our community?
    I see myself fitting in pretty well. I enjoy good conversation and a healthy online community. I'm a pretty easy guy to get along with.

    8. What do you hope to get out of being a member at TSO?
    I hope to get a good environment to play video games and a friendly online community to associate with.

    9. Situation: You are participating in a league game when your opponent clearly breaks the league or site rules. What do you do? How do you handle the situation?
    I ask them if they know they broke the rules and if they say no inform them of the rule that they broke. If they do it again, I would save the highlight video then show it to the commissioner.

    10. Have you checked out the different leagues here at TSO? Which leagues (if any) are you interested in? What is your preferred league setup?
    I've checked out the different leagues, I'm interested in the Orange Crush online dynasty and joining as Virginia Tech to play with Frank Beamer's team haha. I really have no preference on league set up, I just want a good environment to play in.
