Danny O’Byrne

Danny O'Byrne

Danny was born and raised in Omaha. His dad, a Michigan native, started attending Creighton basketball games in the Tony Barone era, but stopped shortly after the Rick Johnson dumpster fire began. He rekindled the Bluejay flame toward the beginning of the Dana Altman era, this time bringing his oldest son along for the ride. Danny was hooked, so much so that when it was time to apply for college, he only filled out one application and, facing perhaps a slightly disappointed look from his mother, might be the only non-athlete ever to check the “athletics” box for the “What was your top reason for choosing Creighton University” question on the incoming freshman survey.

Danny has written for several Web sites as well as the Ralston Recorder and the Omaha World-Herald, and he also maintains a personal blog. He is quite fond of the artistic exploits of J.D. Salinger, David Halberstam, Bill Simmons, Mark Twain, and Taylor Swift. He likes to read, spends far too much time on the Internet, watches more television than you and, though he has never really partaken in one, would probably enjoy a long walk on the beach.
