Jason Fieber Former Staff

A second-generation Barkie, Jason begins his Bark career as a junior struggling to escape the shadow cast by his older brother Michael, who liked to think he was God’s gift to high school journalism. In his effort to make a name for himself in the big bad world, Jason spends much of his time asking his Cross Country/Track and Field teammates to “Please slow down,” and vehemently refusing to eat, or acknowledge the existence of, non-name brand cereal. Aside from his academic pursuits, Jason enjoys playing basketball in an attempt to emulate his idol, Kent Bazemore.
