Scott Kessler

Contributor

As a seven year old, Scott managed to read an entire baseball encyclopedia. Raised by an Eagles ticket holding father and a Philly mother (and fed nothing but Ed Wade, Ray Rhodes and Terry Francona nonsense), he became a four-for-four fan during the barren Philly landscape for sports of the post ’93 era. Since deciding that writing was his future – his only talent - he has chosen to write about his passion: sports. Three years ago, he became enamored with international football (soccer) and has been loving the sport ever since. Writes the column “Heard the Footsteps” on BleedingGreenNation and can be found on the other Philly area SBnation blogs. Scott is currently a student at Rutgers New Brunswick studying Journalism & Media Studies.
