Mike Doherty: Features Editor

Take a good look at him, because there’s a good chance you’ll confuse him for his twin, Matt. Mike Doherty eats, sleeps, and breathes basketball, it’s basically his full time job.  When he’s not breaking ankles or fielding compliments meant for Matt, Mike is writing as a feature editor for The Lobby Observer.
