Split Decision was created in the summer of 2017, by two Vancouver Island guys who loved talking sports, and wanted to expand their opinions to others and create something bigger.
Hayden Trupish is from just outside of Edmonton, Alberta, and never takes anything too seriously. An avid Christopher Walken and Steve Buscemi fan, when Hayden isn’t hitting the books at the University of Victoria, he’s either watching the game, or gaming. Priding himself as a New England Patriots, Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Lakers fan, Hayden doesn’t have the best taste for sports teams, but we let him get away with it. Hayden’s crowning moment in life was toe-dragging a former 4th line WHL player in a game of pick-up hockey.
Tyler Bennett is a broadcast journalist from Victoria, British Columbia, currently working in the sports department at CHEK News. Tyler also lends a hand to Roll.Focus. Productions in Victoria as well. When he’s not behind or in front of the camera, Tyler spends his spare time rooting for the Toronto Blue Jays, Carolina Panthers, Portland Trail Blazers or Vancouver Canucks. An avid beer-league hockey player, sub-par basketball player, and serviceable baseball player, Tyler enjoys everything about sports, and enjoys going to work being able to tell the stories that emerge from sports, whether its local or international. A BCIT broadcast & online journalism graduate, Tyler excels in telling people what they need to know, and using an intriguing tale to do so.
Nathan Hutton is an avid cinema fan residing in beautiful Langley, British Columbia. In addition to his passion for basketball and sports in general, Nate is the movie nerd of the group. Currently working his way into the film industry, Nathan provides insight and detail to the blockbuster movies, latest releases and everything in between. Some of Nate’s favourite movie topics include Star Wars, Christopher Nolan’s latest work, and all news surrounding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nathan is also a BCIT broadcast & online journalism graduate. Now, Nate is a Golden State Warriors fan, but he claims he cheers for the team because ‘he was drafted by them in NBA 2K9.’ We don’t buy it, but we’ll let you be the judge.
