Our Staff

Tess Hyer, 2015 Intern

Tess, a senior at Southern Oregon University, comes to us with a wealth of experience, working with the SOU Athletics Department. Originally from Winters, California, Tess fell in love with Oregon and hopes to gain more experience in the sales and marketing aspects of the sports industry. As an avid sports fan, she cannot wait to work with the Medford Rogues!

Tess will cover many areas in business operations, game-day staff and show preparation and tickets sales, and will be a great asset in promoting the Rogues through social and traditional media throughout the off-season and summer. She is also part of our sales and marketing team that will make our 2015 "Fill the Park Friday" promotion a great success. Tess joins the Rogues immediately while remaining with the Raider Athletic Department through the school year and completing her studies at SOU.
