He was selected for the All-Chicago teams in both basketball and baseball when he was a senior in high school and played basketball for his high school’s squad.

Soon after, he established himself as a reliable basketball game analyst. Gannon gives credit for his career to Coach Jim Valvano, stating that Valvano reminded his players that basketball “shouldn’t be your entire life, it shouldn’t absorb you.” Gannon attributes his success to Valvano.
