Heels Maven pairs award winning sports journalism with the inside scoop on all things North Carolina Tar Heels, offering fans the best online source for their favorite team. Heels Maven is published by Brant Wilkerson-New, who in three years at the Greensboro News & Record earned AP Sports Editors top 10 national recognition four times for his coverage of Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State, and the ACC. He also received four N.C. Press Association awards for work that ranged from an investigation into reclassification and Marvin Bagley’s early enrollment at Duke to a multimedia timeline profiling the life and career of NASCAR legend Richard Petty.
Brant brings fans true in-depth coverage from deep investigative pieces and breaking news to injury updates and video from the sidelines. With intelligent conversations via podcast and even more intelligent analysis in the form of film study, Brant brings the big picture to fans, yet keeps room for the lighter side: the funny moments, the Roy-isms, and all the eye-rolling uniform details.
