How Does This Individual Represent “Excellence in Engagement”?

When sports fans hear Barstool Sports, there are exceptional chances that the first personality who comes to mind is Big Cat. The Chicago native has branded himself to be one of the publisher’s biggest stars, touting 750K followers on Twitter and one of the highest engagement rates for sports influencers on Instagram. From interviewing former Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz to playing an over-the-top capping connoisseur on “The Barstool Sports Advisors,” his chameleon-like ability to play both sides of the sports personality spectrum has allowed him to build a fanbase that extends far beyond Barstool’s highly-devoted audience. His podcast, Pardon My Take, was ranked the 14th most downloaded podcast of the year (across all genres) on iTunes in 2018.
