Michael Sanders joined Tufflepuffs his sophomore year at Tufts. He was an integral part of Tufts World Cup 5 & 6 teams and has since taken on a leading role within the TUQ beater corp. Big Mike's favorite part of quidditch is the strategy and pure insanity that goes along with the game. He enjoys beating people in the face but will never say no to chasing, seeking, or even keeping. Mike's favorite quidditch memory is his entire time with the team. His whole experience on Tufts Quidditch has been his favorite memory, and he loves his team more than he's willing to admit. When Mike graduates this May, he will most definitely be continuing his involvement in the sport - regardless of where he ends up.
Big Mike is most definitely a "super" senior. On top of being an active member of the quidditch community, Mike is a brother at the Tufts chapter of the Theta Chi fraternity, a FOCUS dad and grandad, dances with the Tufts Burlesque troupe, is a member of Major: Undecided (a sketch comedy group), and is president of TUPAC, along with numerous other activities on campus. Mike is also "the worst," as demonstrated by his trading card for World Cup 7. Over the summer, Mike interned for NYPIRG - New York Public Interest Research Group. It is the largest Student-Run research and advocacy organization in NYC. His job allowed him to attend important State meetings, meet a lot of important people including the mayor of NYC, help save the planet, and, most importantly, allowed him to take time off to participate in three Fantasy Quidditch tournaments! Next year, Mike hopes to continue doing good; he will most likely be in the Peace Corp somewhere in either South America or Africa.
In terms of World Cup 7, Mike is looking forward to seeing all the friends he's made within the quidditch community.
Michael Sanders is one of the 2 graduating seniors from the Tufts team going to World Cup 7, and will be incredibly missed next year.
