Bio

Alexander Amir is from Brooklyn, New York and has a B.A. in Economics from the Macaulay Honors Program at Hunter College. Since he was young, Alexander has dreamt of becoming the General Manager for an NFL team, and has spent most of his life working towards that goal. His journey into sports began with Sports Management Worldwide’s Football Analytics and Football GM & Scouting Courses, which led to the creation of Blitzalytics. As Chief Editor, Fantasy Football Director, and a Senior Scout at Blitz, Alexander has his hand in many aspects of Blitzalytics’ content. Alexander has worked at the NFL League Office and at CBS Sports, which has given him a rich understanding of sports statistics and strong knowledge of the game. He also has experience working in the legal field and will be attending law school in the fall.
