Love BYU football, recruiting, or basketball? Vanquish The Foe is looking for writers

George Frey

We're looking for a few good men or women to help us take Vanquish The Foe to the next level. If you're interested, check this out.

Do you have a knack for writing, presenting an argument or writing in detail about current events, based on dynamic flow of information? Are you a college student who is looking for additional writing experience and mentorship to lay the foundation for a career in sports journalism? Do you want to help join what we believe should be the premier website for BYU sports, news, and commentary on the Internet?

If any of the above ring true, awesome. We'd love to have you at Vanquish the Foe. VTF is currently in a transitional period, and we're looking to add several new writers, as well as possibly a new editor-in-chief (site manager) of the site.

We'd like our writers to be able to commit to publishing 1-2 articles a week, on BYU topics of their choosing. Our ideal site manager would help run and establish coverage of BYU football and basketball gamedays and the lead ups there to, help mentor and train the other writers and work with SBN staff, and fill in the editorial and coverage gaps as needed.

The blog manager is a paid position, while the writer positions have the potential to be paid, based on output and site growth goals. A number of writers around SB Nation's tremendous college network have gone on to receive compensation to work at their respective destination sites as well as over the years. Depending on your work, dedication and talent, there are always opportunities for talented writers with high enthusiasm and overall creativeness. In particular, we'd love to hear from those that like writing about recruiting, BYU football, and BYU basketball (though we love non-revenue sports as well).

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has strong knowledge about BYU, both current and historical.
  • Possesses strong writing skills.
  • Has a nose for news, both in knowing what is important and identifying where to find it.
  • Is able to write in line with our best practices for growing an audience.
  • Is able to write and publish quickly while remaining accurate.
  • Is a self-starter who can work with minimal direction.
  • Possesses solid communication skills.
  • Is comfortable working in a virtual environment.

Previous writing experience is preferred, but not required. If you'd like to join our team, or would just like more information, please email a resume (and a writing sample) to

We look forward to having you join our family! Go Cougs!
