Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Kyle Lowry

A 16-year-old high school junior who has great passion for writing and basketball, specifically the Raptors of course. After writing dozens of unorthodox basketball blogs online for two years, there was a growing desire within me to write more professionally about the Raptors. Luckily, I stumbled upon the opportunity to write here!

Jerome “JYD” Williams

Let’s NBA. A Queen’s University Grad, art-enthusiast, and brew-master. The ride that is the Toronto Raptors roller-coaster is not one I’ve any intention of getting off. I started my career in CIS/USports and now lead projects with MLSE, FIBA, and whatever the future may hold. Writing for RC is one of the best ways I’ve been able to combine my professional skills with my personal passions. Looking forward to sharing the purple (red) fever!

Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Kawhi Leonard

A Queen’s University student with a passion for writing. When it comes to the Raptors and basketball in general, I’m a huge fan. In fact, when the Raptors lost to Brooklyn in 2014, nobody cried harder than me. Wait… Maybe I don’t want to admit that. Oh well.

Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Kyle Lowry, Jose Calderon, Mo Pete

Journalism Student at Carleton University. Been a Raptors fan for most of my life, the first game I remember watching was a regular season matchup between the Lakers and Raptors in 2000. The dream is to be the successor to broadcasting greats Matt Devlin and Jack Armstrong, or work for Open Gym. Anything to be around the Raptors or the NBA. I’m very lucky to have the opportunity to apply the skills I’m learning  into something I’m extremely passionate about. Looking forward to many years at RC to come!

Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Jose Calderon (You guessed it!!)

Graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in History. Military veteran, teacher, graphics designer, and paralegal. Followed the Raptors since the Carter vs. Iverson days, but an NBA fan since the 1991 Finals. You’ll find me on League Pass, reading, writing, and breathing NBA Basketball.

Favourite All-Time Raptor: Kyle Lowry


A 19 year-old student of journalism at Ryerson. Young, but I have many years of experience in defusing my family’s scorching hot sports takes. An eternal optimist, every year I find a way to convince myself that we’re going to win the championship. So far I’ve never been right, but I promise that this is our year.

Favourite All-Time Raptor:
  Vince Carter

International free agent and Raptors fan before I knew where Toronto was. VC would have to be my favorite Raptor of all time. Around the time that he left, I remember reading a quote that went along the lines of, “For there to be such hate, there once had to be a great love.” That summed up my feelings. It is a privilege to apply my skills as a technical writer to write for a sport, organization, and fanbase I have so much passion for. I look forward to engage with you in thought-provoking, insightful, and original ideas.

Favourite All-Time Raptor:
Tracy McGrady

University of Waterloo alumnus and an advertising enthusiast thanks to the monumental We The North campaign. Repping the Raps since Family Business was dunking on unsuspecting fools. Momma raised a writer and a basketball fanatic so here I am writing for the Raptors.
