Meet Darnell!

Jpeg

Darnell is a Field Team Supervisor for NYC Football.

Z: How long have you been with ZogSports?

D: Player since fall 2005, ref since spring 2006

Z: Why do you love working for ZogSports?

D: I love working for ZogSports, because meeting new people is always great, and Zog provides continuous chances to do so.  I love the opportunity to help someone new to the city or someone that’s shy have a great experience and make some new friends.  And I love being a part of the fun both on the field and off.

Z: Do you have advice for the best pickup line to use at a ZogSports happy hour?

D: Don’t be corny, just say “hi”.  Alternately, challenge her to a bar game!

Z: What has been your ZogSports highlight?

D: A recent highlight I’m proud of was helping a new dodgeball team that was having a really rough time against veteran opponents still have a good night by making jokes and keeping it fun(ny) for them.  They went from wanting to leave mid match to smiling and laughing. That was a great ending to my shift.

Meet Ron!

Ron is a Field Team Supervisor for NYC Basketball.

Z: How long have you been with ZogSports?

R: Been at Zog about a year and a half.

Z: Why do you love working for ZogSports?

R: I love working for ZogSports, because I love playing and teaching the game of basketball.  As a referee I am able to spread my knowledge and skills to help another player enjoy the game as much as I do, and Zog gives me the opportunity to do that.

Z: What’s the best team name you’ve come across while working for ZogSports?

R: Best team name to me was “I’m in love with the coco”.

Z: Do you have advice for the best pickup line to use at a ZogSports happy hour?

R: I don’t have a pickup line.  I just smile and close the deal….lol.

Z: What has been your ZogSports highlight?

R: My favorite Zog highlight was during a 4vs4 basketball game.  Both teams only had 4 players a piece and had played their heart of all games.  One player from team A got hurt so instead of team B continuing 4vs3 they decided to drop a player on their team to continue the gritty competition.  In the end the team with the 4 players won, but it was good to see that they did not take advantage and played a fair game.  To me, that was a great highlight moment.
