About Us

SWMO Sports was started in 2010 by Israel Potoczny. Since then we have been dedicated to providing the best coverage for high school athletics in Southwest Missouri. After 9 seasons under Israel’s lead, SWMO Basketball was sold to Dan Simpson. In 2021 our current owner Skylan Akins took the reins.

We were founded as just a basketball site but under the direction of Akins, we expanded to include a multitude of sports including Baseball, Softball, and Volleyball. We have been fortunate to make a difference in the athletic careers of many high school athletes through the years and our vision is to continue to help kids reach the next level of competition through our articles and our camps.
