Meet the Team
I don't think Grantland Rice done it this way ... it's been awhile since I filmed Coach Paul Bryant interviews for ABC Sports but every step of the way I have been "Tide and True"
Hi, I'm Dakota. I'm currently attending the University of Alabama and pursuing a degree in Management with a minor in both Sales and Sports Media.
I am a lifelong fan of sports. Growing up we watched every Alabama football game that was on TV. If it wasn't on TV we tuned in to Eli Gold on the radio. I've played baseball, basketball, and football growing up and loved every single time I stepped on the field or on the court. Now I contribute here on Bama Hammer.
Hello! My name is Lauri Springer, and I am a 23 year old graduate of The University of Alabama. I am currently working in Education, but I am thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue my dream of covering all things Crimson Tide with Bama Hammer. I was born and raised an Alabama fan, and I am a college football fanatic. From recruiting to spring practice to summer camp to Saturdays in the Fall to bowl season, Alabama football is my passion. I am so excited to be able to share my insights, thoughts, opinions, and current happenings with the Bama Hammer community. Roll Tide!
My name is CJ Dew, like Mountain Dew! I began writing several years ago and am very passionate about SEC Football, Miami Heat basketball, Miami Dolphins football, and Miami Heat basketball. Writing is something I have always enjoying doing, especially to see other peoples perspective on things.
Hi there, I'm Jacob Harrison. I'm a soon-to-be graduate of The University of Alabama. I'm a busy guy, serving as the producer of Tuscaloosa's highest-rated sports talk show: The Game with Ryan Fowler on Tide 100.9 and a contributor at FanSided's With The First Pick and Bama Hammer. I also cover the Pittsburgh Steelers in another capacity. When I'm not neck-deep in sports, I enjoy playing video games, listening to heavy metal and hanging out with my three wonderful children.

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.
The idea of 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 the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle 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.
Zach Best Co-CEO
Best co-founded the company in April 2007. He manages the growth of the network from a business and financial standpoint.
Patrick Allen VP, Content & Strategy
Patrick is VP, Content and Strategy for the FanSided. He has been with the network since 2009 when he was hired to be the expert at Arrowhead Addict. He currently heads up FanSided's editorial headquarters in Chicago and is proud to be a fan of the world champion Kansas City Chiefs. To ensure his head doesn't get too big, he continues to cheer for his home town Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians. The Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA Championship was the greatest day of his life. Go Buckeyes.
