Staff writer-A little about me: I have lived the state of Oklahoma all my life. I am Sooner Born and Sooner Bred. I cover every nook and cranny of The University of Oklahoma Sooners football program. I live, sleep, football, covering games, as well as off the field stories that affects the Sooner Program. I am a proud OU fan, but also I am not afraid to be objective and realistic about what is happening in and around the program.
Overall sports fan, especially football and basketball. I was the sports editor of my high school's newspaper until I graduated in 2014. I received 2nd place in the 2014 Oklahoma Scholastic Media for Opinion Story. I love my teams, but will criticize when needed, especially on Twitter. I'm an Oklahoma Sooners, Oklahoma City Thunder, and New England Patriots fan.
Broadcast and Electronic Media student at OU. New to this whole blogging thing, but I have been a passionate fan of OU sports for as long as I can remember. I love OU Basketball and Football, and also try to stay knowledgeable on every sport going on in Norman. I am from Independence Missouri and love the Royals and Chiefs, but Oklahoma always comes first in my sports world.
I'm a journalism student at the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Oklahoma sports, I enjoy hiking, retro baseball hats and GIFs. Follow me on twitter @Davis_Spenser
We aren't called FanSided for nothing. Our network of sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites are powered by fans that want to cover their passions! Whether you are just looking to get your start in online media or you want to contribute to your favorite site as a hobby, FanSided wants to hear from you.
Our work is regularly featured on SI.com and Bleacher Report and many FanSided writers have gone on to work full-time in online media. FanSided hired over ten of its own writers in 2013 and there are currently FanSided alums working at other major media outlets and with professional sports teams.
FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.
From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
