The Daily Illini

Eli Schuster

I am a junior studying journalism looking to generate innovative and creative content for the sports world. I grew up in a northern suburb about a half hour from Chicago called Vernon Hills. Being that close to a major city really helped grow my love and appreciation for sports. While being a Cubs fan has had its downsides, I would just like to say who's laughing now? I have a background in writing and performing comedy, which is obvious from this hysterically written bio. Even though I'm rather new to The Daily Illini, I already feel at home and truly admire my fellow co-workers. I hope to make the sports department even stronger and also learn to fly. Hopefully one of those will be obtainable!
