Farewell, and Thank you to Inside The Star

What started out as a hobby turned into a passion for me once joining back in 2016 as a Staff Writer. Never in my wildest imagination would I have believed I would find such joy covering the for one of the most passionate fan bases in all of professional sports. But, that’s exactly what happened.

Week after week I challenged myself to put out content fans around wanted to read. They can’t all be hits of course, but I’d like to believe my work hasn’t gone unnoticed and that you, as readers, looked forward to reading my work. Sadly, and with much reluctance, I’ve decided my time with ITS has come to an end.

I don’t know if it was my heartstrings or gut, but something has been pulling me in a different direction for a few months now. Sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and do what you think is best. Because of that, I’ve decided to move on.

First off, I want to thank my Managing Editor Bryson Treece. He took a chance on a somewhat inexperienced writer and helped me improve my craft by leaps and bounds over the years. I can’t properly put into words how much I have truly enjoyed this opportunity and how much I will take away from it because of you.

Secondly, I want to thank my fellow ITS Staff Writers. You’re a great group of guys and it’s been an absolute pleasure working with all of you over the years. I hope you’ve learned as much from me as I have from every single one of you. Keep up the good work!

And last but not least, I want to thank the great fan base of this website, especially the loyal readers. We may not see eye to eye all the time on certain things, but we do share the same kind of passion for America’s Team. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed interacting with all of you over the years. It’s one of the things I may miss most about the ITS community.

Farewell, and thank you Cowboys Nation!

Enjoyed your articles..I will miss you


Your contributions to the forum will be greatly missed. I appreciate that you were able to find things to write about that weren’t always everybody elses front page topics. That ability alone created a lot of interesting back and forth.

Anyway best of luck, maybe you could drop in with an occasional guest piece when you get the itch.

Take care


We will miss you Brian! Thank you for your contributions!

Brian thanks so much for the time you have put in writing for ITS ! I as a Cowboy Fan have learned a lot about The team I have followed for over 49 years because of your research and articles you have written! We have agreed more times than not on the issues relating to The Cowboys and the times that we have disagreed don’t take it personal that I was right and you were wrong ! Ha. All joking aside I’m going to miss your articles and I know whatever you do next it will be done in a first class way! GOD Bless!

It’s been a pleasure working with you, Brian. You took a chance on me as well, that ITS would be worth your time; you’re part of the reason for this site’s success. I’m going to miss the clockwork-like notifications of your 0700 posts and the diversity of topics you wrote so fluently. Good luck with the next step and keep in touch.


Our loss … may you be richly blessed in all your future endeavors!
