Samuel Smith: Founder

Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Age: 21
School: University of Georgia

I started Dynasty Network to give kids an opportunity I never had in high school. I wanted to give them the opportunity to let their voices be heard, to learn and grow as writers before they entered college. I’ve been pleased with the progress I’ve seen in the time that they have been writing for us.

Other than that, I’m a third-year student at the University of Georgia. I’m a journalist, poet, musician, revolutionary, visionary, and above all else, I’m a storyteller.



Peyton Gallaher: Founder

Hometown: Knoxville, Tennessee

Age: 19

School: Arizona State University     

All social media: @PeytonTGallaher

I am a freshman Arizona State and my goal is to improve every day. I value good people and I love seeing the underdog win. I have been doing play-by-play for seven years now and writing for longer than that.

My end game is to eventually end up in a role in which I get to tell stories about sports through play-by-play commentary for a living. My other interests include, but are not limited to: sneakers, hip-hop, politics, art, and pop-culture in general.


Harris Hicks: Chief Executive Producer


Hometown: Franklin, Tennessee

Age: 17                                                                                                               

School: Centennial High School

Hello, I’m Harris and I am currently a junior at Centennial High School in Franklin, Tennessee. I have been following numerous sports leagues such the NFL, NBA, College Football and College Basketball since I was just seven years old. I aspire to be a college basketball bracketologist and columnist when I grow up. My goal for the dynasty is to create an atmosphere where our writers can improve and become the best they can possibly be. 

When I am not talking or writing about sports, I am often playing them. I have played basketball since I was in elementary school and I also play soccer. I also have outside interests in movies, music and American History.
