The Red Ledger

Benjamin Nopper
After a successful inaugural year on staff, junior Benjamin Nopper is delighted to return to The RedLedger for his second year as a contributor. Although Benjamin’s niche is technically classified as “sports editor,” he knows that he possesses a multitude of alternative responsibilities, which consist of extemporaneously making witty jokes (i.e. dad jokes) as well as offering his opinions when they are (or sometimes are not) requested by his superiors. All jokes aside, Benjamin genuinely hopes that his readers will learn essential information from his sports stories, and whether you agree or disagree with his opinion pieces, he encourages his audience to think for themselves based on facts instead of subjective feelings. Benjamin is an avid supporter of the First Amendment, and he is happy to listen to and civilly discuss differing viewpoints (the comment section is a beautiful thing). Nopper loves spending time with his family, friends, and three dogs, and when he is not in the newsroom, he is involved in both school and club baseball, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, Student Council, and Spanish Club.
