Who’s Behind Hoop News?

Hoops News is the creation of Evan Crowell, made possible by  the Walton Raiders Basketball program. Evan, a freshman at Walton, began pursuing his passion for sports journalism and analysis at Dickerson Middle School as a reporter for the Dickerson Times. Hoping to continue developing his craft at Walton, Evan partnered with the Walton Tip-Off Club to recognize and promote the student athletes who are Walton Raiders Basketball.

In addition to his work on Hoop News, Evan coaches a youth basketball team and has provided game commentary at East Marietta Basketball. He also is an active member of the Catholic Church of St Ann, where he first learned the game, and a member of the Walton Leadership Club.

Hoop News would not be possible without the support of Coach Bo Abney, Coach Matt Kelterborn, Amy Hecklinski, and Tom Wideman. Thank you for the opportunity and, most of all, thank you to the student athletes who give us the stories.
