Owen Smith @OwenSmith247
Co-Founder of Eastside Sports. Public Relations Student at Ball State University with a concentration in Sports Marketing & Communication. I graduated from Greenfield-Central high school in 2016 and spent a few years playing for the basketball and football programs before being sidelined by a series of concussions. I now spend time working on different radio stations (WRGF Greenfield 89.7 FM & WCRD 91.3 FM) as a Sports Analyst. I have also developed a passion for covering sports in different ways such as podcasts, play-by-play announcing, color commentary, journalism and more. I have a strong passion for Professional Sports, but enjoy nearly anything sports related. Most of my content will be found on the “Off the Bench” Podcast & “Pros with O” section of Eastside Sports.

Kris Mills @KrisMills37
Co-Founder of Eastside Sports. I graduated from Waldron High School in Shelby County in 2009 and later attended Indiana University for journalism until 2014. While in Bloomington, I covered IU football, basketball and baseball for The Shelbyville News. I was offered my first official gig in the business in 2015 at the Herald Journal in Monticello as a sports editor and performed the same role a year later at the Journal Review in Crawfordsville. With hopes of coming back to the Indianapolis area, I was lucky enough to find a home at the Daily Reporter as a sports writer until April of 2017.
I developed a passion for sports while playing – if you can call it that – basketball, baseball and football as a kid.
