A communications professional and a 2001 graduate of Providence College, Kevin combines his writing background and love of PC and the city of Providence to help run a site that is both balanced and informative.  While at Providence, he wrote for the school’s newspaper, The Cowl, was an executive board member of PC Pals, was an Admissions Ambassador, and participated in Urban Action.

Craig Belhumeur ’11

Follow Craig on Twitter 

Born in 1989, Craig Belhumeur was immediately entered into the world of Providence College basketball. With parents who owned season tickets, it did not take long for him to love the Friars. At the age of 4 his family moved from North Smithfield, RI to Gorham, ME but they continued to make the trek down to Providence, for many of the games each year. His favorite game he ever attended came back in 2004 when the Friars took on #7 ranked Connecticut, at the XL Center, and Ryan Gomes put on a show as the Friars took down the eventual national champion Huskies, 66-56.
As a life long Friar fan, Craig graduated from Gorham High School in 2007 and entered his freshman year at PC that fall. During his time at Providence, he served as the Men’s Basketball Chair for the Friar Faithful, worked on the Intramural Athletic Board, and hosted a sports talk show on PC’s radio station, WDOM.  For Friar Faithful he designed the group’s website, went door to door in each of the dorms selling season tickets, and made the Friar Flash newsletter for every home game.  Placed on the seat of each student, The Flash previewed the two teams and shared announcements about upcoming Friar Faithful events.After meeting Kevin Farrahar, through a Providence Fullcourt Boardroom function, Craig joined him in effort to build FriarBasketball.com.
