 “As co-founder of Lex, Buds, and Pick & Roll, I hope that my perspective of being a former athlete, teacher, and coach can bring our audience a unique insight to all things UK sports.  I also hope to bring my expertise in history to provide context to current social and political issues going on in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”


Brandon Boyd PortraitBrandon Boyd

I was born and raised in the 606 – Whitesburg, KY to be more specific. I played sports for the Whitesburg Yellowjackets. As an avid Kentucky Wildcat fan from early childhood, I had visions of tying up the old shoe laces for Rick Pitino and Tubby Smith. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out.

What did work out was I graduated from UK, married my high school sweetheart, had two amazing kids, and have enjoyed a very successful sales career. I enjoy every minute of life, especially those days when UK is playing. I look forward to bringing a fresh perspective on all things UK sports and the news that impacts Kentuckians on a daily basis.

I’m a registered independent and like to play devil’s advocate on just about any issue just for the heck of it. Hopefully, this will make for a better experience for our followers of the podcast and website. Stay classy, Kentucky!
