The Red Ledger

Benjamin Nopper
Reserved in personality but candid in his writing, 15-year-old sophomore Benjamin Nopper is a first-year sports writer for The Red Ledger. Benjamin found his passion for journalism from his experience at Willow Springs Middle School, where he enrolled in a convergent digital media class and directed a UIL award-winning sports telecast for his school’s bi-weekly announcements. Nopper is an avid fan of all sports, and he has even had the unique privilege of shadowing MLB sportscasters for Fox Sports. If he’s not in the classroom, there’s a good chance one might find him on the baseball diamond, where he pitches and plays outfield for both his high school and club baseball teams. On the rare occasion that he is not studying for his classes or honing his baseball skills,  Benjamin might be outside playing frisbee with his three dogs, baking his signature chocolate chip cookies, hammocking in his backyard, watching a Miami Marlins game on TV, or even participating in the occasional yoga session. Nopper especially enjoys writing and public speaking and one day hopes to pursue a career in either marketing or journalism.
