College sports has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the heart of the OSU-Michigan rivalry (NE Ohio) with parents who were deeply invested in all things Duke-UNC, I learned early on the importance of claiming allegiance to a team and sticking to it (which is how I justify being a Cleveland sports fan). I started working in sports while I was still a student-athlete at Hendrix College in Conway, Ark., and worked as a graduate assistant in athletics communications while getting my master’s at Vanderbilt University. I spent the next four years as a sports information director at the University of Florida, working directly with volleyball, track & field, and lacrosse. After a four-year stint trotting the globe with USA Track & Field as the press officer for the national team, I joined ESPN in August 2017 as the manager of communications for ESPN’s College Networks. Every day, I get the chance to promote all of the incredible people and programming we have on the SEC Network and Longhorn Network and support our PR efforts for college sports across all of our networks. On any given day, you can find me drinking coffee, scrolling through Twitter (@BrooksAD) and showing off pictures of my cat, Garko.
