Hello everyone, this is Sam Forman coming to you from the foothills of the Great Smokey
Mountains in Kodak, Tennessee.
I love hanging out with friends and talking and watching all things sports. To say sports play a
large role in my life would be an understatement. I grew up in a sports family that lived and
breathed just about every sport you can think of. I live in SEC country and can proudly say I have
been to watch a game in almost every SEC schools stadium (still need to get to Missouri, Texas
A&M, and Arkansas).
I won’t claim an unchangeable allegiance like some people will do to the SEC. Currently I am
studying at The University of Tennessee, at Knoxville, where I hope to earn a bachelor’s degree in
journalism and electronic media in the near future. While football is my favorite sport, I am just a
sport junky in general. I love basketball, baseball, softball, and hockey. You can find me watching
soccer and volleyball regularly as well. I also love keeping up with recruiting and playing fantasy
My father was a high school football official for 20 years and I would spend my elementary and
middle school years helping the clock operator on his crew. Having this experience as a kid really
helped me develop a passion for football early and a great understanding of the rules from an early
If you’re wondering what I did before arriving at Three Point Stance? The answer is pretty simple.
I am the lead staff writer for the sports section of the Tennessee Journalist, where I cover many
different sports at the University of Tennessee, as well as some local sports in the Knoxville area.
Also I am a DJ for WUTK 90.3 The Rock in Knoxville and expect to be joining the Rock Solid
Sports team in mid-January.
While you may not have seen any stories from me in the fall of 2015, you may have heard my voice as the co-host of the Cody McClure show here at 3PS.
I have had many great opportunities to cover SEC and non-conference games involving Tennessee
Athletics over the last couple of years. I have interviewed players, coaches and talked with many
fellow media members at sporting events in and around Knoxville.
I am a career driven person that loves life. My other passions are music, outdoor activities, and as
bad as it may seem watching, talking, and learning more about sports. I played several sports as a
kid but my musical side drew me toward band in high school and I can proudly say I spent six
years marching in the Pride of The Southland Marching Band. Without my time in the Pride I
would not have the discipline and dedication I have today and yes I am that guy that loves to watch
pre-game and half-time shows by college marching bands and will defined them as an important
element to college football.
When I’m not on the clock you can find me hang out with friends, watching Baseball in
the summer and having fun on the golf course despite my bad score. I look up to Tim Brando,
Mark Packer, Colin Cowherd, Chris Berman, Chris Fowler, Stephen A. Smith and the late great
Stuart Scott and many others.
To the readers of Three Point Stance Magazine, I promise to you:
You will always receive my best and that I will work tirelessly to improve with every article I
write. As well as to earn your views, valuable time and your trust in my work. I take the ethical
side of this job very important and I do my best to make sure I do things the right way. At the end
of the day something I learned in my time in the Pride is to give my all and ultimately I promise to
always give you MY ALL.
