Two years ago at Pax Prime 2014, I had the honor of meeting Kollin Hoskins, better known as “Hoss Sauced” online. He had been a fan of the show for a while and started taking an active role in the community earlier in the year. A couple of week’s after the expo, I asked him to become our community manager, which he happily accepted. He was a great addition to the team and his participation in the community warranted a more permanent role.
Since joining Podtacular, Hoss has helped bring on Halo personalities to the podcast, reach out and interact with other communities, and run our social media platforms. Out of all the staff, he had the competitive edge when it came to playing Halo and talking about the professional scene, having competed in previous MLG Halo Circuits. Hoss was always on the lookout for community feedback and was a voice relayed back to the staff.
As a husband and father, Kollin had to juggle around schedules to fit with attending game nights and making the podcast. For Pax Prime 2015, he stepped up to the plate and allowed me and Biowolf to spend some nights at his house over the course of the weekend. Unfortunate for us, obligations and opportunities in life has caused him to step down as our Community Manager. While we are sad to see him go, we firmly believe in life responsibilities over managing a volunteer position and wish him the best.
