Editorial Staff

Terry Lane, editor

I am a lifelong writer, Gator fan, runner and listener of sweet tunes. Making my home in Jacksonville, Fla., I make my money as a freelance writer, marketer and content creator. Besides pounding on my keyboard, I also enjoy riding my surfboard and Italian motorcycle, when not watching my Gators or Jaguars.

Brett Kaplan, editor

Brett graduated from the University of Florida in December of 2008 with a degree in Telecommunications and dreams of being on TV. He also graduated into one of the worst job markets our fair nation has ever seen. Brett became the editor for Hail Florida Hail to help him get back to doing what he loves to do: Covering Gators sports. Brett's looking forward to contributing tons of details, news, and analysis.

Travis Coverston, Staff Writer

Travis is a baseball enthusiast from Florida. After playing in high school and college, he now writes for Hail Florida Hail. He enjoys loud music at the gym, country concerts, and is an avid body surfer.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
