About Fantasy Sports Alliance

Brian Buschor created and began operation of Fantasy Sports Alliance in 1993 while a freshman at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. He would go on to earn his bachelor’s degree in Sport Management in May 1999 with a minor in journalism.

After two incomplete years in 1993 and 1994, FSA celebrated its first successful season in 1995 and ran continuously through the 2001 season. Buschor enlisted in the United States Army prior to the 2002 season. FSA paused competition during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.

FSA began again in 2004 and has run without fail minus seasons in which Buschor was deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

Buschor earned a trademark on the name ‘Fantasy Sports Alliance’ in 2014 from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. He also applied for and was granted permission by the Secretary of State of Texas to operate FSA as a limited liability company in 2017.

Buschor graduated in 2019 with his master’s degree in Sport Management from American Military University.

Buschor is married to the former Misty Morrow. He has four children: Taylor (23), Jacob (16), Evaleigh (7), and Leighton (5).
