Everybody Hits Now! Whahoooo!  Please contact Tim if you would like PSL to expand to your neighborhood or if you would like to sponsor PSL.


Ryan Ward, Partner

Ryan has had a lifelong passion for playing sports and from early childhood was the one organizing pickup games in the neighborhood.  That passion continued as life got busier and even through college. At the University of Pittsburgh he stayed active with intramural and adult league sports.  He used his planning skills and artistic inclinations to earn a B.A. in Architectural Studies at Pitt. After enjoying the City of Pittsburgh and all that an urban setting has to offer he advanced to Manhattan and graduated from Parsons School of Design with a Masters of Architecture.  Still seeking an outlet for sports and activity he met colleague Jason Cooper (PSL Partner) who shared his interest in basketball and together they began organizing pick-up games for their architecture firm and eventually the broader building industry in Philly.  During their lunch hour and in the evenings they managed the development of pick-up games into organized leagues for a variety of sports.  The success and demand of what they started evolved into the eventual incorporation of Philadelphia Sports Network that Ryan and Jason co-founded and directed for 10 years before merging with Dan Feeney and Tim Horan of competitor PSSC to bring you PSL!


Eric Long, General Manager

Eric attended Kutztown University where he played soccer for two years before transferring to East Stroudsburg University where he graduated with a B.S. in Recreation & Leisure Management Services in 2007.  While at East Stroudsburg, Eric served as the University's Intramural Supervisor. Eric, wife Kristina, and daughters Harper & Teagan live in Flourtown.  He is a huge Philly sports fan and loves playing soccer, basketball, hunting and fishing.  His favorite time of the year is March Madness.  You will see Eric out & about managing Monday basketball, Saturday football and many other PSL leagues.  If you have any suggestions, schedule requests or questions about any leagues please feel free to contact Eric at any time!

Lanie Brunner, Marketing Coordinator

Having played the same team sports since middle school, Lanie wanted to try something new when she headed off to college at Bryn Mawr. Rugby seemed like a functional mix of sport and social, and proved to be the perfect break from her math and chemistry classes. Ask her "why marketing?", she'll tell you she still needs a break from harsh fluorescent lighting from time to time. 



Josh McManus, Director of Operations

Josh graduated from Neumann University with a B.S. in Sport and Entertainment Management in 2015.  He currently enjoys spending time with his family as well as playing in multiple leagues with PSL & WCSL.  Josh is a huge Philadelphia sports fan, especially the Flyers and Eagles.  You'll most likely find him taking care of all field, facility & equipment issues that need attention, as well as working leagues, tournaments, and events that PSL hosts.  


Nick Herceg, Assistant Director of Operations
Nick's passion for sports started at birth.  Since then, he has graduated with a B.S. in Sport Management from Drexel University in 2017 while also competing on a Top 20 Nationally Ranked rowing team.  After graduation, he spent a year with Villanova University's recreation department as its Intramural Sports Intern.  You can find him digging his toes into the sand and soaking up the sun during the summer, and glued to the TV during the fall to cheer on the Eagles.



Victoria Pierson, Assistant Director of Operations

Victoria graduated from Neumann University in 2016 with a B.S in Criminal Justice where she played Division 3 soccer. On her days off she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, as well as watching her favorite team, the Philadelphia Flyers.
