Rik Benson  Host
Married with two grown children, Benson grew up in a small town (Kerhonkson) situated between the Catskill and Shawangunk mountains of New York's Rondout Valley. Only about an hour and half north of New York City, he has always rooted for the local teams - Yankees, Giants, Knicks, Islanders, and of course Syracuse University. He would admit that though not his true favorites, he has adopted the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Lightning as "close seconds".

Benson became a believer in Christ as a young teenger and has been involved in sports ministry for many years.
Zac Barletta  Producer
A native Rochesterian, Zac and his wife currently have a young son and daughter with another on the way. In addition to having the only quality beard on the team, Zac knows a stunning amount of useless facts and statistics. It is also rumored that he started shaving prior to the age of five. He is passionate about music and movies. He is a dedicated Bills fan who also roots for the NY Rangers, Yankees, and Toronto Raptors. He admittedly has a fantasy sports addiction and participates in more leagues than was thought to be humanly possible.

Zac came to know Christ as a young child.
