Established 1826 — Oldest College Newspaper West of the Alleghenies

Jack Schmelzinger


Jack is a junior from Orchard Park, NY studying journalism and economics. He started writing for TMS in the fall of 2020, and he became the sports editor last spring. He spent Summer 2022 washing dishes at a high-end Italian restaurant in his hometown, so he is ready to study really hard this semester! He’s a huge Buffalo Bills and New York Yankees fan, and anything less than a championship each this year would be a crushing disappointment for him. When he’s not writing sports, you can probably find him watching sports, defending Drake’s newest album, or playing a ludicrous amount of MLB the Show.

The name “RedHawks” was first mentioned in The Miami Student in the Feb. 23, 1992 edition. William Snavely, then an associate professor of management and now the mayor of Oxford, wrote this in a letter to the editor: “I suggest we move the discussion to what the change will be rather than if we should change. To begin that discussion, consider changing to the ‘Redhawks.’”

Hockey to be tested in tune-ups vs Canisius: what to watch

On paper, this is Miami’s best team in years. They’re deep up front and seem to have a top six that could produce offense. They have capable puck movers on the back end who will do their best each week to slow down the high-powered offenses of the NCHC. And when you have Ludvig Persson, you have a chance.
