My name is Bryant Horn, and I am a junior at the University of Alabama studying Sports Journalism. Growing up in Alabaster, Alabama, just 20 minutes south of Birmingham, I was thrown into the fire that is southern sports.
I currently cover high school football in the Birmingham and Tuscaloosa areas for AL.com. Previously, I held the position of “production intern” at WJOX 94.5, the sports talk radio station in Birmingham.
I am a third-generation Alabama student, so naturally I grew up watching the Crimson Tide every Saturday, from the “dark years” under Mike Shula to the current dynasty of Nick Saban.
In addition to college football, I quickly became enamored with my high school’s football team. I attended every game, and by my junior year of high school, I was given the opportunity to call play-by-play for my high school’s news team.
On the side, I quickly started following every sport I could- Premier League soccer on Saturday’s and Sunday’s, the NHL during week nights, and the MLB during the summer.
My ever expanding passion for sports has brought me to where I am today- studying sports journalism, trying to make a difference in the world of journalism. My goal? To bring breaking sports updates that are both relevant and accurate.
