Hunter Bingham
Assistant General Manager

In the summer of 2016, Hunter and Gabby moved from Kansas City to Rochester, NY where Hunter coached and was an assistant chaplain for an Athletes in Action collegiate team, the Rochester Ridgemen. After the summer, Hunter moved to Southern California to come out of retirement and pursue a master’s degree in leadership from Azusa Pacific University and play on their baseball team.

Summer Intern (Arizona State University)

Christopher W. Cadeau is from Metro Detroit, Michigan, and thought joining the United States Marine Corps was a way of changing his stars. At that time Christopher’s parents couldn’t afford college, he was an underachieving student and he couldn't stay out of trouble. Christopher would later rise to the rank of Sergeant of Marines, but became ill during his seventh year of service. Recovery taught Christopher a valuable lesson. Life is put back together the same way it falls apart; one day at a time. Each and everyday for Cadeau is a blessing that he refuses to take for granite. Christopher believes he can only keep what he has by giving it away. Today, when life gets tough Chris reminds himself, "You got this," because today he has a life beyond his wildest dreams.

Cadeau is currently working to attain his dream of becoming the voice of a professional team. Christopher is a senior majoring in Sports Journalism at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Christopher also broadcasts ASU baseball, softball, basketball, and hockey for ASU student radio.
