Twany excelled in all youth sports and went on to become one of Louisville, KY Ballard High School’s all-time great players.
Twany earned a basketball scholarship to Mississippi State University where he played and excelled in the classroom before transferring to the University of Kentucky where he was a member of the 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship team and earned a Bachelor's degree in Communications.
