Jack Schmelzinger

Jack is a senior from Orchard Park, NY studying journalism and economics. He started writing for TMS in the fall of 2020, and he became the sports editor spring 2021. He's a big Buffalo sports and New York Yankees fan, which at least partially explains his generally pessimistic attitude.
