About

Sporting Pumpkin was founded in August 2020 as a collaboration between John Howley and Brad Morris to offer a sports blog that provides coverage of Amanda-Clearcreek, Circleville, Logan Elm, New Hope, Teays Valley and Westfall high schools.

After building an audience over the past two years, Sporting Pumpkin started its transition into a sports media website in September 2022.

Co-founder John Howley is a graduate of Bowling Green State University and Circleville High School.
