Duncan Wielgos Headshot

About you

I’m a recent graduate of Tulane University, where I majored in Marketing and Business Management and minored in history. Growing up I played every sport I could, from baseball to soccer to ultimate frisbee. My love of sports continued into college, where I was a student manager for the women’s basketball team and won three consecutive intramural softball championships.

Where you’re from

Outside of my four years in New Orleans, I’ve lived my entire life in the Chicago suburbs. I grew up attending a wide variety of sporting events in the city. Despite this, and much to the chagrin of my family, I’m not a fan of any of the city’s men’s sports teams.


I’m a huge soccer fan, and I have a collection of over 30 team scarves from around the world.

Favorite youth sports memory

Playing soccer growing up I was always a forward. My junior year of high school, however, I ended up playing a lot defense for my team. I got moved back to forward for the start of the playoffs and scored 6 goals in 3 games, including the championship winner.

Background/Career highlights

Working as student manager for Tulane’s women’s basketball team is definitely a highlight. I also have a variety of different internship experiences.  At Rise Interactive, a digital marketing agency, I performed paid search marketing for a variety of clients. At SpotHero, a parking reservation company, I helped create spot pages for the website and app. Working for SMS Assist, a tech-based property management company, I helped acquire affiliate partners and managed work orders.


I joined LeagueSide for several reasons. First, it’s been my life-long goal to work in sports. Second, working at LeagueSide provides me the opportunity to learn and be challenged every day. Finally, I passionately believe that youth sports should be accessible to everyone, so LeagueSide’s mission to make youth sports affordable resonates deeply with me.


I think having a growth mindset is the key to success in any role. I love learning new things, and I think putting myself in uncomfortable situations and asking questions makes life more exciting.
