Ben Hensley

Ben Hensley, Editor-in-Chief

Ben Hensley is a fifth semester journalism student at Fresno City College. Having been with the Rampage for all five semesters, Hensley has progressed through the ranks from reporter, to sports editor, to now Editor-in-Chief.

Hensley hopes to one day become a sports broadcaster, filling the booth either at live events calling the action, or on an opinion and analysis show, sharing his thoughts on everything from football to lacrosse.

Despite the pandemic, he hopes that this semester will help push his future career to the next level, meeting and surpassing the challenges of writing and coordinating the Rampage during a global pandemic.

Hensley is interested in politics, music, and hopes to be able to expand his interests through personal experiences and through the writing of his fellow reporters.

In his spare time, Hensley enjoys watching and playing sports (when he's not perpetually injured), playing video games, catching up on Netflix and Hulu series', and spending time with family - though he's racked up quite a phone bill since the onset of the pandemic.
