During his time in Austin, Stephen had the opportunity to get involved with on-line streaming of high school football games.

During his time with the Thunder he gained experience in the professional sports field, learning the inner-workings of the NBA as well as event planning, management and execution.

He has covered the Final Four, College Football Playoffs, and national championships for gymnastics and softball. He has also covered professional sports for the student run broadcasts OU Nightly and Sooner Sports Pad.
His love for sports goes much further back than his college years, starting as young boy who once told his Papa that one day he would play football for the “Boomer Sooners”. Stephen’s love of sports quickly expanded beyond solely football. His interests spread to basketball, golf, hockey, soccer, and many more. This love of the game transformed over time from wanting to play the sport, to wanting to be a voice that announced the high-paced, ever-fluctuating action of all athletic pastimes.
Stephen grew up in the small village of Wimberley Texas, about 40 miles southwest of Austin, and being an OU sports fan was not easy. He consistently supported his team, despite being in the heart of Longhorn country. This opposition fueled constant discussion and study of the intricacies surrounding high-level sports.
Stephen’s never-wavering determination, and relentless thirst for knowledge makes him an indispensable asset to any team he works with.
