My name is David McDaniel, the founder of Run the Break. I grew up roughly 25 miles southwest of Neyland Stadium in Lenoir City, Tennessee. Ever since I was a boy, the idea that over one-hundred thousand people could come together in one great coliseum to support one cause, the Volunteers, astounded me. I’ve been hooked to any sort of organized competition since. As I grew older, I realized sports are not used or played strictly for entertainment. Sports are an outlet for passion, love, redemption, social justice, family, and so much more. Run the Break’s mission statement is to provide a space for news, updates, and hot takes on all popular sports for the everyday fan.
