Our Executive Team

Duncan Boone  
About Duncan
I am a Senior (woah that's weird) from Chesapeake, Virginia majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Sports Business in the Honors Business Program of the LCB and a minor in Multimedia from the art school. I am in my third year on the WSBC exec board and am serving in the role of Vice President of Professional Development and Industry Engagement.

I hail from the East Coast where we are always three hours (steps) ahead of you West Coast kids, but am a second generation Duck behind my father who's career in the Navy has taken us all over the world while living in Asan, Guam and Naples, Italy earlier in my life. When I arrived on campus three years ago I quickly learned the WSBC was the family for me, and my passion for sport has only grown stronger.

I follow almost all sports, but am a huge fan of the Seahawks and Spurs. Russell Wilson is my hero and Tim Duncan had the best pregame outfits, don't @ me.

I model my football intramural game after Wes Welker but perform like Brett Favre after coming out of retirement (the second time).

I have been lucky enough to gain valuable experience so far at Oregon while interning with the Student Alumni Association as a Graphic Design Intern, with Youth Movement as a Design Director, with Oregon Football team an Ambassador and with the UO Athletic Department as a Fan Experience and Creative Services Intern.

Jc C Pollard - VP of Membership and Recruitment 
About Jc
Hello Humans,

My name is Jc Pollard, I come from the far away universe commonly known as Utah. I am a sophomore here at the University of Oregon, majoring in sports business and minoring in political science. With the exception of the mass amounts of water that falls from the sky I absolutely love UO. Aside from serving as the Vice President of Membership for the Warsaw Sports Business Club, I am also a Personal Trainer at the Rec, as well as a two time IM Football Champion.

Fun Facts:
-I know how much Peyton Manning Weighed at birth (14 lbs).
-Forest Gump is the best movie ever made.
-I take Intramural sports way too seriously.

On a more serious note, I am honored and privileged to be a part of the Executive Board. This club is so incredible in terms of the services and opportunities it provides for our members. I look forward to helping make this year in Warsaw the best ever.

Colin Loftus - VP of Marketing and Digital Media 
About Colin
Sophomore pre business major. VP of Marketing and Digital Media. I'm from Hollis, New Hampshire, and I'm a fan of the Pats, Sox, Celtics, and Bruins as well as the French national team and PSG. At the moment I'm hoping to have a career relating to the advertisement/organization of sneakers/soccer cleats/sportswear in flagship retail stores or launch events, possibly abroad. I played basketball, baseball, football, soccer, and lacrosse in high school and love playing anything I can get my hands on. I'd say some of my greatest life achievements are getting like 3 nutmegs in 10 seconds on a kid in soccer or being referred to in Sports Illustrated for my costume at a Ducks basketball game.

Joshua Gordon - WSBC Faculty Advisor  
About Joshua
I am an Adopted Duck after moving to Eugene from Boston. I remain a Red Sox / Celtics / Patriots fan to the core. I run an awful lot and continue to compete in just about anything my worn out body allows! Always up for some tennis or raquetball, as well.

I have a lovely daughter, Joelie aka "Junior", wife, Renee (who also works here at the University of Oregon), and dog named Byrun (a very distinguished German Shepherd).

Benny Johnston  
About Benny
I was born in Santa Cruz California and lived in the Bay Area until I was about 7 when I moved to Lake Elsinore California. I've played baseball throughout my life as well as football and track and field. I have a passion for sports and I intend to study sports business during my time here at UO.

Ethan Miller  
About Ethan
I am a sophomore currently at the U of O, majoring in Business and Political Science. I'm serving as Vice President of Finance and Sponsorship of the Warsaw Sports Business Club, in addition to being a Football Ambassador with the Football Department, and a Student Ambassador (Yellow Jacket). It's my first year on the Exec board, having previously served on the Halftime Report Team, and as the Wingleader for the Sports for Good Ducks of a Feather Group.

I'm from Belmont, California, a suburb around 20 miles south of San Francisco. I'm a big Giants and Warriors fan, though my football team is the Patriots because Tom Brady is from the town next to my hometown, and my whole family is from Boston. This means I've had a great past few years...

I'm extremely excited to start the school year off with my new roles and work my hardest to make WSBC the best it could possibly be.

Samantha Rudder  
About Samantha
I love the world of graphic design, from brand development to sustainable packaging. I want to see clean, concise designs educate and empower society at the intersection of the health, food, and athletic industry.

My major is art & technology (graphic design)-- I intend to pair this technical education that teaches me how to problem solve with my entrepreneurial mindset to create value through business; I love the idea of the gig economy. I am developing professionally and deepening my network through clubs like Warsaw and WIB. I would argue that I am gaining the most valuable insight and perspective for my future in organizations like Ekklesia!

A couple of months after starting UO, I was hospitalized and have been on the road to recovery since. As I regain my spark (always mindful of how easy it is to spread myself too thin!), I’m only investing myself in organizations I believe in. Fortunately, through this non-stop struggle for health and understanding, I realized I could focus that same grit to help other people achieve emotional wellness and maximize their athletic potential.

Trent Birch  
About Trent
