SMWW Football Analytics Grad, Scouting Academy Graduate, Graduate of UNH Business School
Background in Finance, and IT Consulting
George Haraktsis is an avid football fan and a die-hard Patriots supporter. He is originally from a city just outside of Boston called Peabody. George grew up playing and watching football at a young age which is where his passion and knowledge for the game started. He currently resides in Cambridge MA, where he continues to support all of his Boston sports teams.
On top of graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a dual Major in Finance and International Business in 2015, George was formerly employed by an IT firm consulting firm in downtown Boston for two and half years called Peloton. Although he had a great job he decided over the last year that IT wasn't what he loved and needed to pursue his passion for football and decided to help Jack Bourgeois start Blitzalytics!
George recently graduated from the Football Analytics course provided by Sports Management Worldwide. Here he gained strong analytical and problem-solving skills as well as a better overall understanding of the industry from the course. He was taught by industry's legends Aaron Schatz and Mike Tanier, of whom George still has a relationship with!
On top of Sports Management Worldwide George is currently enrolled in the Scouting Academy and learning from the likes of longtime scout Daniel Hatman! While also working weekly with Montreal Alouettes Director of Scouting Russ Lande, to sharpen his skills.
George has been professionally writing, talking about, and scouting football and fantasy football for a year now and his articles have been featured on well-known sites such as DiMoro Sports, FantasySports.com, and Blitzalytics. He currently has a weekly podcast with Jack Bourgeois called the Blitz Breakdown as well.
George is currently building and hopefully always will be building the Blitzalytics brand as Co-CEO along with Jack Bourgeois. Along with being a CEO, he is spearheading the Fantasy Football division with Director of Fantasy Football Alexander Amir and hopes to start a fantasy football specific podcast soon! George aims to procure employment in the football industry for not only himself but the entire Blitzalytics team!
