Hi! My name is Fred Morlan, and I've been involved with quiz bowl for a long time now. Part of my involvement with the game is the HSQBRank project, where I regularly put together a set of rankings for high school quiz bowl teams. Each year I put out a set of preseason rankings where I try to project the top quiz bowl teams of the coming season. I also, barring real life complications, post updates to the rankings during the season at least monthly. Finally, at the end of the season, I release a set of All-World teams that recognize the top 40 individual players of the year. I also name the Player of the Year as part of the All-World process.

These rankings help high school teams compare themselves against their competitors across the nation and world in the months before the national championships. It also allows them to set goals for improvement over the rest of the year and into the future.

Being able to get money for my hours of work on this project each year will help me ensure that spending time on this work will help me continue to work on it into the future.

In the future, I hope to be able to add additional reward tiers to this Patreon.

Want to give a little extra? This will get you early access to the rankings. I'll post each completed set of rankings to Patreon exclusively for 48 hours before they go up on the main blog.

You'll also get access to exclusive podcasts I will be doing regularly - at least 1-2 a month - to talk about the latest happenings in quiz bowl as well as answer your questions on various aspects of the game.
