Matthew Schiffman


I am from Orlando, Florida and was raised as an avid University of Miami Hurricanes fan. I now attend the University of Missouri where I am a sophomore enrolled in the Journalism School and am studying to become a sportswriter. I do, of course, support my school in all sports, especially football, but I am still a die-hard Canes fan at heart.

Growing up I played just about every sport, but I focused on soccer and tennis in high school. I enjoy watching all sports, so I will be covering a wide variety of events in my stories.

Currently, I work for my student TV station, MUTV 23Sports, and write for the student newspaper, The Maneater.

    Hey Matthew—Jeff here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Hurricanes page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Matthew (can I call you Matt?), thanks so much for editing my lengthy article. I've read it and it sounds a lot better. Shame about the formatting left from my word processor though - makes it all hard to read.

    Do you have any tips or resources (online or offline) to help me learn basic grammar (I'm so uneducated I know)?

    I dunno if you get notified about replies to editor feedback so I thought I'd leave a note here.

    Hey Matthew, how are you? You commented on my very first article, if you remember.

    I worked really hard on this article. It's about the Man City takeover. I know it's been written a lot about, but I think my views are unique. Would love for you to read it and give me your feedback.

    Hey Matt,

    I enjoyed your article on Miami's QB situation. Very informative and deep. Cool that you got to see that dude light up your high school. Anyway, I am a huge New York Football Giants fan and I was wondering what you thought of Kenny Phillips? Any insight would be appreciated.

    I just edited your article, but note thatI tried to correct the spacing, but it the editing site did not let me.

    I appreciate your feedback on my editing; it's always good to have a second pair of eyes go through the edited articles and correct the potential mistakes I have made.

    I have gone through what you have edited, and I can say that both of us are correct on the edits. For example, you can say "the most fun" and "the funnest", either way is good. Also, semifinals can be written with or without a dash (at official Wimbledon website, it's written without a dash, whereas at Euro 2008 website, it's written with a dash).

    Once again, thanks for the feedback. Cheers,

    --- Dusan
