Sports Editor, out!

DYLAN PADY, Sports Editor | [email protected]

My time spent at the Northern Iowan has been great, undeniably one of the most memorable portions of my college experience.

I began my journalism career in high school.  Journalism was the only class required before you could join the school newspaper.

After that, I soon became the sports editor for Cedar Rapids Jefferson’s ‘Outlook.’

I then applied at the Northern Iowan as a sports writer on the day of my first visit to UNI.

After a year of reporting, I was offered the sports editor position. The collegiate transition as editor was apparent, but nothing I couldn’t handle.

I learned a lot from some of the smartest people I know, and they proved to be even better friends.

I’m going to miss layouts in the fall, streaming NFL games with Josh and complaining about how bad our teams are.

I’ll miss carrying Madden in Overwatch, but, admittedly, he is a better Sombra than I am. 

Sierra and Gabby rule the kingdom of memes that is our office and I’m going to miss having Leziga around to remind me how bad my taste in music is.

It’s all in good heart, though, we can both agree that Yeezy is the GOAT. 

The staff made my time at the newspaper the most enjoyable, and now my initial greeting “hello,” mimics that of our awesome boss-man, Clinton.

I’m going to miss everyone, and Wednesdays and Sundays are now going to feel emptier without layout.

But I hope to eventually return with a different title in mind.

Just like LeBron did with Cleveland, I’m heading to Miami to win a couple rings; then I’ll be back.
