ABOUT THE X SPORTS NETWORK

The X Sports Network grew from covering high school sports on local radio in Southern Tennessee to being among the first in the nation to pioneer live video streaming of local athletic contests.  Launched in 2014, the X Sports Network began by covering Lawrence County, Loretto, and Summertown High Schools in football, basketball, and baseball in addition to producing a weekly live talk show dedicated to highlighting the student athletes at each school and offering insight into the region’s professional teams and clubs.

Our first step into video broadcasting was in the Summer of 2015 when the X Sports Network was tasked with live streaming that year’s Babe Ruth World Series in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.  Our initial steps into video streaming and broadcasting the event’s games were deemed a huge success and set the stage for what was to come in 2020.

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the limiting of attendees at high school ballgames, the X Sports Network was called upon to offer live video of the games that were to be played during the 2020-2021 academic year.  X Sports staff members worked to make the request a reality and began that season with offering every game we carried on both radio and live video on social media.

From then on, the X Sports Network worked to cover nearly all available sports at local middle and high schools including football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, golf, and tennis.  We’ve even live stream a band competition or two along the way in addition to an NCAA Division I soccer match at the University of North Alabama.

Why do we do what we do?  Simply put, it’s about giving the student athletes something they can be proud of.  We’d like to imagine that many years from now, then former players will be able to look back with their children or even grandchildren and show them the games that defined their high school careers from the broadcasts preserved in our database.  Having this ability will hopefully bring great memories back to the former player while inspiring an entire new generation of athletes.

We will always go the distance for student athletes and local sports in Southern Tennessee and North Alabama.

Well... AJ Good is a pretty good guy.  Since he hasn't turned in a bio that he wrote himself, watch this section... his wonderful coworkers will gladly do it for him.  His story began in West Virginia... you know the place... where they sing a song that's actually about the western part of Virginia... and not about their own state...
