About the Founder


Great Wall of China

On the Great Wall during 2008 Beijing Olympics

Hello, sports fans, and welcome to indysportslegends.com. My name is Cliff Brunt.

I wrote for The Associated Press for seven years, and when the company downsized in Indianapolis, I decided this would be a good way to continue on my path as a sports writer. I have since returned to the AP as the lead writer in Oklahoma City, but the site is in good hands with Tyler Smith, Brock Sanders, James Howell, Jr., J.W. Calinger and prominent guest writers Jim Johnson, Joshua Chapman and Ross Weber.

I am perhaps best known as the AP’s beat writer for the Indiana Pacers, Purdue football and basketball and the Indiana Fever. Over a 19-year sports writing career, I’ve covered the 2008 Beijing Olympics, two men’s and one women’s Final Four, Super Bowl XLVI, the College World Series, the Indianapolis 500, the NFL Scouting Combine and the NBA playoffs.

We look forward to continuing on this journey.

God bless,

Cliff Brunt
