Matt Brown

Former Editor

Matt Brown is the Co-League Manager for SB Nation College Sports, the Co-Manager for SB Nation's Ohio State site Land Grant Holy Land, and the former editor of Vanquish the Foe. He will occasionally post to help give a more national perspective on BYU related news. Matt lives in Washington DC, and has a BA from The Ohio State University. Outside of the MTC, he's never even lived in Utah, but he's found that maintaining a spot on the VTF masthead makes him a lot more popular with his Elders Quorum. Matt can be followed at @MattSBN
