"Juggernaut" Joe Su is a former player for McGill University. From 2013-2019 he played with Derek So and, later, Akhil Garg and Daniel Lovsted earning the best ICT and ACF Nationals finishes in school history.

Joe is known for his frequent and efficient logistical work at Canadian tournaments and American nationals. Beginning with a fall novice mirror in 2010, Joe has done stats for countless high school and college tournaments—sometimes travelling great distances to do so.

A veteran of Lisgar High School's quizbowl program, Joe was the driving force in re-establishing quizbowl at McGill. Joe played Reach for the Top for Lisgar and did reasonably well in his junior and senior years despite his hatred for the game. Joe is also the only three-time winner of the NAQT Ontario Provincial champion, having done so in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Joe enjoys writing meta questions. His writing work includes PADAWAN, Spartan Housewrite, and various editions of the Ottawa Hybrid Tournament.

Joe was awarded the 2023 Carper Award for his efforts in expanding quizbowl in Canada.
