Keeping It Heel was founded in the fall of 2011 by Matt Hamm. In just a few short weeks Keeping It Heel became a known, respected, and trusted news source for all things related to the North Carolina Tar Heels. In the Spring of 2013, Bryant Douglass (former staff writer) rejoined the website as a co-editor.

Now serving as the editor for the website, Bryant continues to follow in Matt’s leading. A lifelong Tar Heel fan from North Carolina himself, Bryant brings his knowledge and experience to offer the best news and opinions to the best and most loyal readers on the web! With media access to the College Press Box and ACC Media, Bryant has numerous resources to bring to you the best UNC coverage online in addition to the resources of being a FWAA and USBWA member.

Following in Matt’s footsteps, we continue to strive ourselves on being your most trusted news source and even more for all Tar Heels news and opinions. A reputation we’ve built as one of the 240+ websites a part of the FanSided Sports Network.
