Randy Karraker

You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who knows more about St. Louis sports, or sports in general, than Randy Karraker. Randy has been part of the St. Louis sports media for more than two decades, but his super-fandom started years before as an usher for both the Cardinals and Blues.

“My favorite sports moment was the first NFL playoff game played in St. Louis, when the Rams scored on their first offensive play against Minnesota, a 77-yard touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to Isaac Bruce,” Randy says. “That’s followed closely by Mark McGwire’s 62nd home run on September 8, 1998 against the Cubs.”

Randy’s also involved in several St. Louis charities, including his annual golf tournament benefiting Every Child’s Hope. You can hear him holding court on The Opening Drive weekday mornings from 7-10 a.m. on 101 ESPN.

Carey Davis

Nothing like adding a Super Bowl Champion to your roster!

Carey co-hosts “The Opening Drive” with Randy Karraker and Brooke Grimsley from 7am-10am weekday mornings on 101 ESPN. Carey’s athletic career began at Hazelwood Central High School where he won a State Championship his sophomore year in football. Carey’s football career continued at the University of Illinois where he helped lead his team to the first outright Big Ten Championship in nearly 20 years. After graduating in 2003 with a degree in Sport Management, Davis fulfilled his dream of playing in the NFL. Davis was signed by the Indianapolis Colts as a rookie free agent in 2004. In 2007, Davis signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers and earned the starting fullback job to begin the season. Davis proved to be a crucial weapon in the Pittsburgh offense and helped lead the Steelers to an amazing Super Bowl XLIII victory in 2009.

Carey’s broadcasting career began as an analyst for the St. Louis Rams on 101 ESPN and then as a sideline reporter for the Fighting Illini. Davis would go on to coach at his alma mater starting in 2018 as the new head coach at Hazelwood Central.
