The Central Trend

Matthew Mahoney
Matthew is a senior at FHC and is on his third year on the FHC Sports Report, his second as Sports Editor in Chief. He has been the captain for varsity soccer for the past two years, and he also plays club soccer for Michigan Fire in the spring. In the winter, on top of balancing club soccer, he plays basketball for the school. He loves to watch soccer, basketball, and football, and he also loves to root on Marquette, Michigan, and Arsenal.


Favorite part about the Sports Report: Just hanging out with the other sports reporters in the classroom. We have built a family-like atmosphere and culture the past few years, and it's a very nice thing to look forward to at the end of my day.

Hobbies/ Interests: Hanging out with friends, playing/watching sports, and running.

Favorite Punctuation Mark: The comma - I am a fierce proponent of the oxford comma.
