Hey friends, my name is Jeff Carroll, and I am the founder of basketball owl.com. I grew up playing basketball with my dad on our driveway court as a young kid.

Playing with him was such a memorable experience that I have a gallery of those moments hanging on the wall. 

Again, I noticed his passion for the game was contagious, and I gradually fell in love with the sport. 

Even today, 20 years later, I’m honored to coach my school basketball team. 

On this blog, you’ll be able to find some great games and tons of articles that cover all sorts of topics from rules, history, reviews, etc., all subjects that you need when starting out.

My Sentiments Behind Basketball Owl

When I was in college, I studied journalism with the hope of becoming a sportswriter. After graduating, I got my first job as a reporter for a small-town newspaper.

Soon I realized that writing about high school sports wasn’t what I wanted to do with my life. So, I moved on to bigger and better things. But my love for basketball never faded. 

In fact, it grew stronger. And that’s why I decided to start my own basketball blog.

I started to consult basketball experts to create a different and authentic learning platform. 

Moreover, I aim to provide an in-depth look at the game I love. And will cover everything from the NBA to college basketball to high school hoops. 

Then you’ll find my unique voice and perspective behind each phrase.
