About Us

Cougar Sports Network was founded by Andrew Baertlein in August of 2018 during his sophomore year of college at Washington State. 

Andrew had previously spent the past few months as a staff writer at iSportsWeb covering the Oakland Athletics. He had written a pair of editorials on the state of WSU football and found them to be his most popular pieces while at the publication.

From this, Andrew branched off on his own to create CSN with the help of his fraternity brother, Jack Ellis.

Cougar Sports Network strives to independently seek and report the truth while remaining accountable and transparent in their work.
