About the Director
Matthew Bartlett launched The Roost in 2018 because he saw a passionate fanbase that was hungry for more – more news, more insight and more conversation about the team they love. Rice boasts a rich tradition and has a bright future ahead. He wanted to get in on the ground floor and help lay a road map for the years to come.
Matthew is a Houston native that grew up in the suburbs. Baseball was his first sports love but football and basketball followed soon after. He is excited to bring Rice into focus in the city of Houston and beyond. It’s going to be a wild ride and things are just getting started.
