As many of you know our head of recruiting coverage Sean Levy has done a fantastic job keeping us current on all things Stanford football recruiting. He did such a fantastic job, in fact, that he was called up to be a paid writer for another publication. While myself and the entire Rule of Tree staff will miss Sean, and we all wish him well,his departure does leave a rather large hole to fill.

So if you are interested in helping us fill Sean's rather large Stanford football recruiting shoes then read on. Or just send a writing sample to nickdempsey [at] or Jack at jmblanchat [at]


The Rule of Tree Audience is growing, and we need to grow as well to meet the demands of our bigger audience. Therefore, Rule of Tree is looking for Stanford fanatics, passionate sports writers, content creators, and digital marketers to join our team. We are a Stanford sports blog with a national audience and part of the SB nation network. Contributors to the network have gone on to work for the LA Times, ESPN,, Grantland, Rivals, 247sports, Scout, SB Nation (national), Comcast sports, and many more companies.

In this opportunity (or internship if you can get the school credit for it) we will help you cultivate the tools and skills necessary to launch your career, including but not limited to:

-Honing and perfecting your writing skills

-Helping you understand how to captivate a digital audience

-Teaching you the basics of growing your social media audience

-Providing opportunities to create other forms of digital content such as podcasts

-Helping you learn the basics of search engine optimization

-Building your personal brand

We are looking for people who enjoy writing, creating podcasts, videos, social media, and all sorts of content. We are also looking for someone willing to learn and improve, can be self-motivated even while working remotely and are passionate and dedicated to contributing regularly (you will get out of this what you put in).

Rule of Tree is a group of passionate sports fans dedicated to covering the school and sports we love. That is why we are here. You do not have to be a die hard member of Nerd Nation, however, to join. If you just want to improve your skills, we will gladly work with you to help you get the absolute most personally and professionally out of this position while providing exposure to a national audience and cultivating your personal brand.

In other words, we will invest in you personally and help you get to where you ultimately want to go. In fact this posting is up because the person we are replacing just “turned pro” so to speak and took a paying gig with another publication.

You can find out more about the SB Nation Network here.

To be considered, please send a resume and a writing sample to nickdempsey [at] or Jack at jmblanchat [at]
