I grew up cheering for the Braves but mostly the Auburn Tigers. I went to school in Virginia and Birmingham. I’ve lived in Georgia as well. But I am home now. There is no place like Birmingham.

My soccer allegiance rests with first and foremost the Birmingham Hammers / Birmingham Legion FC and the US Men’s and Women’s National Teams. Secondly, I cheer for Atlanta United due to my kids loving to watch Almiron, Martinez, and the rest of the 5-Stripes.

I also love to watch EPL games on Saturday mornings… really any team is just fine with me.

My go-to formation is the 3-5-2 and I like to press forward in my weekly Old Man Soccer games.

Check the blog often and comment to your heart’s desire. We are here for you and want to interact as much as possible.

I’m an Atlanta born and raised kid who now calls Birmingham home. Atlanta sports were my first love, so just don’t mention the infield fly rule or 28-3 around me and we should get along just fine. Birmingham has been home for 3 years now, and I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

I love reliving the glory days of my (very non-competitive intramural) soccer career as a fan and have been so thrilled to see the growth of the sport in the Southeast. I know Birmingham has the potential to be the next great soccer success story, and I’m excited to be along for the ride.

If you ever want to talk about why Atlanta United’s Andrew Carleton will be the savior of US Soccer, where the best BBQ spots are across the Southeast, or literally anything else, don’t be afraid to reach out.

  1. Hi Scott,

    This is Kyle. We were tailgating next to you last night. I’ve got a 5 things we learned article you’re welcome to use if you like. A couple of our points overlap, but that’s probably fine. Let me know your email address and I’ll send it over. Good summary article, btw.
