About Us

geoff ketchum
Orangebloods.com Publisher
Geoff Ketchum is the owner/publisher of Orangebloods.com. He's covered Texas Longhorn athletics for more nearly two decades. A former UT student that began his media career while working for the Texas Sports Information office while in high school, he quickly moved up the ladder on the UT sports scene. After leaving the UT media relations department, he spent four years with Austin CBS TV affiliate KEYE-TV, while helping the station break numerous national stories, including the hirings of Mack Brown and Augie Garrido as coaches at Texas. In 1999, Ketchum joined Rivals.com, where he served as lead columnist/analyst at Heisman.com and Lone Star Recruiting. In 2001, Ketchum launched Orangebloods.com and in less than a half a decade he led the site to the No.1 spot in the Rivals.com network, a position that it currently maintains. 
Geoff previously worked in the Austin radio market, where he helped take his show to the No. 1 spot in the afternoon drive-time rankings in the first six months on the air. Ketchum also published a book in 2008 (The Die Hard Fan's Guide to Longhorn Football) that hit the No. 1 spot on Amazon.com's Top Sports Books sellers for a spell.
