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!

    AUBURN, Ala. (al.com) – Auburn’s first scrimmage of fall camp didn’t provide any immediate answers about the team, but the 108-play affair inside Jordan-Hare Stadium on Tuesday morning did provide some early looks at what the Tigers have to work with this season. The scrimmage was described as an overall “solid day’ by head coach Gus Malzahn, and while it did not yield a starting quarterback — as of now — it did result in a pretty even matchup between the […]

    Austin Black Bears gearing up for another deep playoff run

    DECATUR, Ala. – The 2015 Austin high school football team was one for the record books.  The Black Bears won ten games for the first time since 1993, and were just one win away from a trip to the state championship game.   Austin lost in the state semifinals 45-35 to Clay Chalkville, but that postseason run gave the team confidence that it can get there again.  “They got to see with their own eyes what they can do and […]
