Elias Podber
Elias Podber is a senior this year and is excited to co-lead the sports section of the paper to new heights. He is captain of the cross country team and a distance runner on the track team, as well as a good friend of local celebrity Ashton Kutcher. Fun fact: Elias is actually a redhead. Enjoy his sports stories as he dodges anything from football players to soccer balls to tennis rackets on the sidelines.
