Matthew Brownsword

Former Vice President and Managing Editor of Media

Matt is a senior from Walpole, Massachusetts studying political science. Matt is the former Vice President and Managing Editor of Media after starting his Herald career as a sports writer and editor.

And he'll wear a Patriots James Develin jersey on Saturday and Sunday to prove it.
