With the 2020 National Signing Day rapidly approaching, I have seen several high school athletes make last-ditch efforts on social media to get their clips watched by coaches and recruiters from across the country. I enjoy seeing that passion come out of young student-athletes who do not wan…

Until I can properly digest the outcome of the national championship game between LSU and Clemson and this week’s basketball game between Auburn and Alabama, I’m taking a look back to 2019 and remembering some of the legendary sports figures who are no longer with us.

As you have probably gathered, I love basketball. I advocate for the sport from youth leagues to the NBA and I want to see it grow as much as possible, especially in a state dominated by football.

With Christmas officially behind us and the new year right around the corner, it’s that time of the season when you start to see people making lofty goals. 

The 2019 season has been a down year for the NFC East Division in the NFL. Historically, the NFC East has some of the greatest players, teams and moments in NFL history, but none as popular as the world famous Dallas Cowboys.

Would you rather try to go for a school record against a team you know you'll beat or try to work on things you need to improve when you have the chance?

The field is set for the College Football Playoff. Good sportsmanship often involves wishing, “May the best team win!” But the best team does not always win, which illustrates an important element of economics.

There may not be a lot of attention on the baseball diamond right now but there are plenty of things happening behind the scenes that have made the news and should probably be talked about more. Major League Baseball had another terrific postseason with plenty of excitement, including a seve…

The NFL is star-studded league that has many household names like Deshaun Watson, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr. and others who have supreme athletic talent everyday people on the street gush over in awe. One-handed catches and 360-degree touchdown passes are fun to see, but they don’t usual…

This past season wasn’t exactly the best one in Alabama Crimson Tide sports history. In fact, in terms of expectations versus results, it could go down as one of the more disappointing in memory.

If there’s one thing “Last Chance U” star Brittany Wagner said at a recent speech at Benjamin Russell that stuck with me more than anything else, it’s one of the uglier realities about the sports world.

As preparation continued for another week of the NFL season last week, I saw a quote from Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield that rubbed me the wrong way. I’m not sure what exactly he meant by it but it didn’t the attention it should have gotten and it became a joke on ESPN talk shows.

The College Football Playoff is now set and for the first time since its inception, Alabama will not be a participant thanks to the Auburn Tigers. You’re welcome America.

We are on the heels of yet another incredible Iron Bowl. What a game it was! Both teams played their hearts out. I’m just thankful the good guys came out on top. It got me to thinking of my most memorable Iron Bowl matchups throughout my lifetime — that I remember.

I said last week this year’s Iron Bowl was going to be very difficult to predict. There were several unknowns that made it nearly impossible to truly know what to expect.

I cannot be certain but since I have not seen a college football game from the time the Iron Bowl ended to the time I am writing this, I can only assume the season has ended and we can now move on to the hardwood. And yes, maybe I am a little bitter but I also just love basketball and the am…

The Carolina Panthers fired coach Ron Rivera on Tuesday after nearly a nine-year tenure. After starting the season 0-2 and losing Cam Newton to injury, the Panthers reeled off four straight wins with undrafted second-year quarterback Kyle Allen and Rivera was in the discussion for NFL Coach …

When Joseph Bulovas’ toe met football leather with two minutes left in the Iron Bowl, there was slow-motion anxiety for every Alabama fan. Misses, pulls, yanks, shanks and doinks from years’ pasts came flooding through their memories like some demented, torturous highlight reel from hell. 

The Philadelphia Eagles have had a long fall from grace just 1½ year removed from an impressive and dominating 2017 championship campaign. The country was in awe of a team coming out of nowhere with a backup quarterback going up against the big bad New England Patriots with who else but Tom …

To the average college football connoisseur, this Saturday’s Iron Bowl may seem rather uneventful. That’s understandable; it’s simple math: Auburn’s lack of offense plus Alabama’s injuries times negative-Tua Tagovailoa equals less national interest.

A couple weeks ago, sports writer Caleb Turrentine penned a column about the potential environment of a high school basketball game. If the crowd is large and into it, it can be one of the best atmospheres around the sports world.

In case you have been living under a rock for the past few days, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a dislocated hip near the end of the first half of Saturday’s game at Mississippi State. By now, most people have found themselves on either side of the argument about whether Tagovai…

It probably has not taken long for anyone who reads my writing to know I prefer basketball to football. And yes, I know football season is still kicking with some major games but with the season starting on the hardwood this week, I thought it would be a good time to encourage all high schoo…

Sadly, we are at the halfway point of the NFL season and there are several teams in both conferences fighting for that coveted first overall seed and a bye week the first round of the playoffs along with home-field advantage throughout the postseason

In case you haven’t heard, there was a high school coach in New York who was suspended for his team defeating an opponent, 61-13.

The Cleveland Browns’ season has not gone according to plan. The team is a 2-6 disaster and the end doesn’t seem to be in sight. Prior to the 2019 NFL season the Cleveland Browns did a complete 180 as a franchise, trading and signing supreme talent to their roster with names like Odell Beckh…

I spend most of my life in the sports world whether covering football, playing basketball or watching soccer. And as much as I love sports, there are some instances in all that time that can make me cringe.

Many people would agree their years in high school were some of the best years of their lives — particularly those individuals who were members of a sports team or participated in other activities such as the marching band or debate team.

The trade deadline for the NFL has come and gone, leaving most fans like me scratching our heads wondering what just happened. Up until the Tuesday deadline, the NFL offseason and six weeks of the season experienced blockbuster trades the NFL has yet to see up to date. Odell Beckham Jr., Jal…

The disappointment of Auburn losing to LSU for the 10th straight time in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was magnified Saturday by the incredible performance of Kevin Steele’s defense.

Auburn versus LSU — there is no match up in college football that produces the drama, craziness and overall tomfoolery as this game. Most years this contest is a barnburner (and in 1996 there was even a literal burning barn backdrop).
