CougCenter responsibilities include: Writing, with an emphasis on breaking down football schemes and finding interesting ways to look at data.

Born and raised in the Tri-Cities, Wash., I'm a current graduate student in environmental science at WSU Tri-Cities and researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

A former high school quarterback, I like to bring the knowledge and insight I gained while playing the position and studying the game to my writing. I also apply techniques in data analysis I've learned professionally when the situation calls for it.

Tweet "@Elite11 #PressureChamber Peyton Bender" to vote for him to be in their final competition of the day, a grueling 2min drill. Players can move on from this super regional to the finals in Oregon, and Peyton has a very good shot to do that. Every vote counts!
