JP. O’Hagan, Sports Editor

JP. O’Hagan is powering through his third year as Biomedical Engineering major and Spanish minor, while serving The Observer as Sports Editor. JP is also a Pre-Med student and so finds that watching and writing about sports is the ultimate study break. In addition to his role on the Observer JP. serves as secretary of the University Media Board, thus calling Thwing a second home. Original From the north-west suburbs of Chicago he logically enjoys all Chicago sports teams – except the White Sox – and in his free time enjoys music, reading, movies, and hanging with friends. He lives by the classic Chicago Cubs credo “There is always next year,” and he bleeds Cubbie Blue. You can contact him at
