Ira Schoffel, Warchant.com Managing Editor
Schoffel joined Warchant in July of 2014 after serving as sports editor of the Tallahassee Democrat the past couple years. Schoffel has been covering college athletics since 1991, and he has been on the Florida State beat since 2002. During his 13 years covering the Seminoles, Schoffel served as managing editor and then general manager of the Osceola, and then senior writer and later sports editor of the Tallahassee Democrat. He also has been a frequent contributor to a variety of regional and national publications. In each of the past two years, Schoffel's work has been honored with national awards in the Associated Press Sports Editors writing contest. In the 2012 contest, Schoffel received first-place honors for project reporting, and in 2013 he and a colleague took first-place for explanatory writing.
Corey Clark, Warchant.com Senior Writer
Clark joined the staff in December of 2017 after working for the Tallahassee Democrat. He spent more than three years as the newspaper’s lead sports columnist and the previous five as its Florida State beat writer. He had been at the Democrat since 2007, and he has nearly 20 years’ experience in the business. Clark and Warchant's managing editor Ira Schoffel make up two-thirds of the popular weekly radio show and podcast, “Seminole Headlines,” which also features ESPN-Tallahassee’s Jeff Cameron and airs on 97.9-FM Tallahassee. The University of Georgia product followed Florida State from a young age because his father, John Clark, was an FSU alum and a longtime supporter of Seminole athletics. Before his time at the Democrat, Clark was an award-winning sports writer at three newspapers in Georgia -- the Gwinnet Daily Post, Valdosta Daily Times and Thomasville Times-Enterprise.

Langston has a decade of experience covering prep athletes and has built numerous contacts and sources throughout the state. His established relationships with Florida high school coaches and knowledge of the recruiting process will be a huge benefit to the readers who follow the 'Noles' recruiting efforts.
