Passionate sports fan

Showcasing his ability to interact with fans and provide unique insights, Bryan was named a finalist in the MLB Fan Cave competition where he learned the X’s and O’s of sports on social media. Bryan is also an accomplished blogger and has seen his work pop up on ESPN, Grantland, Deadspin and amongst others.
