Meet Brian Preece
As a lifelong Jazz fan, I have ridden the roller-coaster of Jazz fandom every season since I attended my first Jazz game in person at the ripe old age of 9. That night, the Mailman led the Jazz with 28 points, John Stockton dished out 18 assists, the Jazz won 110-101 and I never looked back.
My love for the Jazz can be attributed to my late brother. Together, he and I went to more regular season and playoff games than I care to count; including the infamous “flu game” during the 1997 NBA Finals against the GOAT, Michael Jordan.
Over the years, I’ve loyally followed Jazz greats Stockton & Malone, Jeff Hornacek, Deron Williams, Mehmet Okur, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell. Along with other less heralded players like Scott Padgett, Howard Eisley, Adam Keefe, and Kyrylo Fesenko. I celebrated “the Shot” from John Stockton by recreating the sequence thousands of times in the gym and was seen crying on NBC while watching the Jazz lose to Seattle in Game 7 of the 1996 WCF from the Delta Center.
