Jeff Hoppes is the history subject editor for NAQT, NAQT's communications director and their liaison to the forums, president of NCQBA, and a former Chief Administrator of the Hsquizbowl.org forums. Jeff is an unofficial candidate for Nicest Guy in Quizbowl.

Jeff is frequently cited as the most dominant player on a reasonably well-represented category (in Jeff's case, geography), and the best history player still on the open circuit. These strengths helped him lead teams to six NAQT titles in seven years of attending.
