Hailing from Connecticut, Eddie Kovel has been playing his whole life. A closet board and video game geek, Eddie served as the captain of the Emory University Men’s Lacrosse Team and will act as assistant coach this coming year. His favorite board and card games include Dominion, Magic: The Gathering, Agricola, Settlers of Catan, Summoner Wars, and 7 Wonders.
While at Emory, Eddie studied abroad for a semester in India where he learned how to stay in shape without a gym, using nothing but his own body and the world around him to get fit. It was there that he came up with the idea to create a new way to exercise based around playing, not working. Eddie studied business and health at Emory University and is presently working on creating a health and business concentration at Emory. On a given day, Eddie can be found running around Lullwater Park in his Vibrams, dressing up in a red, yellow, or blue morphsuit to rep Playout, or Playing Out anywhere (and everywhere), with anyone (and everyone).
