ABOUT

Todd Dybas

Todd Dybas is the managing editor and co-founder of The Sports Capitol. He has spent 17 years in the sports editorial industry, working as a writer and layout editor, winning multiple awards in both positions.

Todd came to the District in August of 2014. In the three years that followed, he was present for several layers of area’s sports pain. Todd was at the 2014, 2016 and 2017 National League Division Series failures. He watched the Redskins lose to the Giants in 2016 to close the season with a playoff-denying loss. He has twice covered the Wizards being eliminated from the playoffs. He also covered the most recent Caps-Penguins series. It was enough to make Todd think it was him, until he asked around.

He has been an NFL beat writer, has worked as a member of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America for seven years, and is a member of the Pro Basketball Writers Association.

Todd heads The Sports Capitol’s Nationals coverage, supplements the Wizards coverage, and adds to the Redskins and Capitals coverage. He also oversees the day-to-day operations of the site.

Ben Standig

Ben Standig is a host, writer and co-founder of The Sports Capitol. This D.C. area native grew up rooting for all the local squads and dabbled in the professional media world after college before making a full shift to sports writing in 2005.
 
Since, Ben has covered every team and big event in town for several outlets including the Associated Press, NBCWashington.com and Scout.com. That has meant witnessing plenty of heartbreak. From the Wizards getting knocked out of the playoffs in three of the last four years, to watching clubhouse attendants at Nats Park move postgame bubbly from the home to visiting clubhouse after Game 5 in 2012. 
 

Ben also remembers those three Redskins Super Bowl wins with three different quarterbacks, which is why he argues Joe Gibbs is the greatest NFL coach ever. Memories of Georgetown and Maryland cutting down the nets remain fresh, along with that Bullets/Wizards hope that came from Moses Malone, Chris and Juwan, Gilbert Arenas and Caron Butler.

Ben heads The Sports Capitol’s Wizards and Redskins coverage, while also keeping tabs on the college basketball scene and helping out on the Nationals.
