Name: Ryne Hancock
Occupation: College football columnist for SouthernPigskin.com and student at Christian Brothers University
Hometown: Memphis, Tenn.
My favorite way to spend a Saturday in Memphis is: Spending the afternoon at Max’s Sports Bar
My favorite local sports team is: Memphis Tiger basketball. My cousin, the late John Gunn, is one of several players who had his jersey retired by the University of Memphis.
I’m working on: finishing by bachelor’s degree in English. I will be the first person in my family with two degrees.
In 10 years, I hope Memphis: won’t be afraid of change. One thing that makes a town great is by embracing change, and that starts at the top.
My favorite local band is: Iron Mic Coalition.
My idea of a perfect date is: I would have to say dinner at Bari or Automatic Slim’s.
If I could only eat at one Memphis restaurant for a month, it would be: Kooky Canuck
I love Memphis because: there is so much diversity here as well as talented people. That alone is a reason why I love this city.
