Samuel Smith: Chief Executive Producer

Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
Age: 20
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: Assistant Executive Producer

Hometown: Knoxville, Tennessee
Age: 17

I am a junior at the Webb School in Knoxville Tennessee, 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 six years, serving as a broadcaster for my high school, and I am also the sports editor at my school paper.

My goal 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, pop-culture in general, and physical fitness.

I just finished my freshman year at William Jewell College, a small, private liberal arts Division II school in Liberty, Missouri. I am a nursing major and student-athlete. I play middle hitter for the volleyball team.

I’ve been a sports fan for my entire life. I’m am very dedicated to my teams. I am a huge supporter of the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Yankees, Manchester United, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
