Bio

My name is Joel Ruffin, and I am a Pennsylvania native who currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For me, sports are much more than a game; to me, they are a set of events and activities that can grow character, create relationships, and build communities. Growing up, I was always surrounded by great students of the game and tremendously benefited from the insights and realities they brought to the forefront, which transformed how I understood the game and the business that comes along with it. I love all sports; however, my favorites are Basketball and Football. I look forward to learning from those in the FantasyPros community, and I am excited for the experiences we will create together.
