FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

IlliniGuys.com Welcomes MATT STEVENS as Football Writer/Analyst

CHICAGO and CHAMPAIGN, Illinois/June 21, 2021/

ILLINI GUYS, an independent multimedia sports portal launched by media, sports, business and legal professionals with more than 100 years of collective experience in basketball, football and sports media, announces today that Matt Stevens has joined the platform as its Football Writer/Analyst.

Stevens joins Illini Guys after serving as publisher, editor, and beat writer of Illini Now for Sports Illustrated. He brings 15 years of experience reporting on several major athletic programs and his exemplary work has won him several reporting awards throughout his career.

“We are proud to add Matt Stevens to our outstanding and growing team. His experience covering Mississippi State, Auburn, Purdue and the Illini make him the perfect choice to cover Illini football. Matt’s resume and writing speaks for themselves, and we are excited to work with him,” said Illini Guys co-founder Mike Cagley.

“When I was first approached about joining Illini Guys, the answer was almost an instant ‘yes.’ After speaking with Larry Smith and Mike Cagley about their vision for what they wanted in a future hire, I knew it was a situation that had the potential to be exactly what both parties wanted.  It was also instantly apparent to me that the entire leadership involved in Illini Guys was looking for a reporter that had built up credibility, trust and accuracy. To me, it was a perfect fit,” said Stevens.

“I’m excited to get started at Illini Guys, but more than anything, I want current and future subscribers to know that the coverage that I provide will be honest, fair but yet firm on Illinois. You’ll be able to know that everything I produce can be trusted to be truthful whether it be breaking news, daily coverage, features or podcast appearances. That’s my promise to you, the passionate Illini fan and loyal subscriber to IlliniGuys.com.”
