Barry attended the University of South Carolina School of Journalism while majoring in electronic journalism. Growing up in Columbia, SC, he never had a local pro sports team to root for, so he followed the Atlanta teams as close as possible. Now, while serving as Senior Editor for AtlAllDay.com, he has returned to school at Coastal Carolina University to get his masters in education, and a double major in applied mathematics and graphic design. He brings a unique mix of objectivity, humor, and statistical analysis to his work, with a touch of commentary. And, he once watched a baseball game with Dale Murphy, who left him a half drunk bottle of cranberry juice.
