Poggester

Growing up in a family that embraced old-fashioned values, sports, and hard work helped shape Jason ‘The Poggester’ Pogge into the man he is today. After spending three years on the school’s golf team, Jason graduated from St. Thomas High School in 2010—proudly taking four years of school tradition and pride with him as he walked across the stage. After spending two years at the rowdy, yet prestigious University of Mississippi, The Poggester returned to Houston with a rejuvenated passion for all things sports. To Jason, there is nothing better than waking up every day, making a fresh bagel topped with cream cheese, and then opening the sports page, turning on one of the many sports-talk shows on the air, and adding to his knowledge.
