I’m a Texas boy born and raised, but couldn’t be more excited to be here in Huntsville, Alabama! The chance to cover SEC football is a dream come true, so I jumped at the chance to be a part of the WHNT News 19 Sports Team.

Back home in Texas I attended West Texas A&M University where I majored in Mass Communications/Broadcasting. After graduating, my first job in TV was in my hometown of Amarillo. A photographer job at KFDA, where I actually met and worked with Ryan Cody.

After about a year of working in Amarillo, I accepted a Weekend Sports Anchor Job at KWES in Midland, Texas. Then two years later my good friend Ryan gave me a call about a job, and now I’m here in Huntsville!

Football has and always will be my passion, that’s why I feel this is the perfect job. Playing and covering high school and college ball in the state of Texas was great, but the level of passion for SEC football here in north Alabama is a different world that I can’t wait to be a part of. That said, I love anything and everything about all sports!

    Alabama and Auburn prepare for 81st Iron Bowl

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (al.com) – One thousand, sixty-nine yards. Ninety-nine points. If there ever was a game that played into Nick Saban’s nightmare scenario of the offensively-dominated future of football, the 2014 Iron Bowl supplied the cold sweats. His Alabama team out-slugged Auburn for an exhausting 55-44 win that Nov. 29 in Bryant-Denny Stadium. This week’s return to the site of defense’s demise will offer hope for Saban’s vision and the scoreboard operator. Wildly different teams will meet Saturday on the same […]

    Nick Saban not happy after 31-3 win over Chattanooga

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (al.com) – Midway through the third quarter Saturday, Chattanooga was outgaining Alabama and was down by just 11 points. Think about that. Chattanooga, an FCS team that lost to Wofford last week, was outgaining Alabama through two-and-a-half quarters and would have been down by even less if not for a blown coverage that resulted in a long touchdown pass and if not for a muffed punt that gave Alabama the ball inside the Chattanooga 10-yard line.
