Derek Fye is currently the executive editor and main sports editor. Originally from Jamestown NY, Derek graduated high school in 2010. After graduation he attended Mansfield University in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, majoring in sports nutrition. A main reason he attended Mansfield was to play sprint football, which is just regular football except all the players must be under a 172-pound weight limit. Unfortunately, Derek broke his ankle the first semester and his plans changed…as life has a way of doing. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2011. His military occupational specialty (MOS) in the USMC was engineer electrical equipment systems technician. He attended boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina, completed the rest of his schools in North Carolina, and by 2012, he was first stationed in Okinawa, Japan. He spent two years in Okinawa with occasional two or three-month assignments for operations in the Asian Pacific area including Thailand, The Philippines, and South Korea. He returned stateside in 2014, and spent the final year of his enlistment in Camp Pendleton, California. Derek completed his time with the Marine Corps in July of 2015 and moved to Kenosha, Wisconsin, and is currently a junior English major here at UW-Parkside.
