If you haven’t heard his name yet, you will soon. The sensational juggler has been sweeping his way across the nation throughout this basketball season, leaving his mark at halftime shows in some of nation’s most prestigious venues: Staplers Center (Los Angeles Lakers), Galen Center (USC), Hinkle Fieldhouse (Butler), and the list goes on.
Horton, a 25 year old from Dallas, TX, is a basketball-player converted juggler, and his halftime routines denote his skill sets as both an athlete, and a juggler.
“I wanted my halftime show to be very specific to the athletic audience… the dribbling drills that you’ll see Steph Curry do with two balls, I’m doing it with three or four,” Horton said when asked about his routine.
A nine time 9 gold medalist in the world championships of juggling, Horton now has been branding himself over the past few years into a sports entertainment icon, performing at basketball, baseball, football, and even tennis matches.
Along with this his appearances at sporting events, Horton performs at corporate functions, community events, churches, and has even been featured on television shows such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show and SportsCenter.
