The Pizza Hut All-American dishes on NCAA championships and traveling the country eating pizza

Getting paid to travel the country and watch college sports -- all while eating pizza -- seems impossible, but one lucky person has landed the position.

Jason Fisher is the first Pizza Hut All-American, and his job is to go to all the NCAA championships in the 2016-17 season. Fisher, a sports fan from Ohio, won a contest last year out of over 1,000 submissions to claim the coveted title.

Fisher spoke to about his unique role, which he calls the "best job in the world." He said, "It's a great way for me to travel the country, meet new people, see new places, eat a lot of pizza, and witness sports that don't get enough attention and recognition."

Recent events he attended attest to that. While many know about college basketball and football, fans may not know about some of the fun sports that also have championships. Last week Fisher attended the men's gymnastics championships -- and the week before that, bowling.

The first championship Fisher attended as the All-American was for cross-country in Terre Haute, Indiana -- which was renamed "Terre Hut" in honor of the program.

Fisher has turned his passion for sports into a career. But not only does he attend the events -- he tries out the sport himself, too:

The Pizza Hut All-American is part of the chain's partnership with the NCAA. It is the first position of its kind -- no one, not even a NCAA employee, travels to each and every championship game.

And, of course, wherever Fisher goes, pizza goes with him.

Coming up, he'll be attending championships for sports like golf, softball and water polo. You can see a full run-down of upcoming events here.
