He founded Philly Sports Network with Ryan in 2005 after first moving to Philly.

Ryan has had a lifelong passion for playing sports and from early childhood was the one organizing pickup games in the neighborhood. After moving to Philly in his adult life and still seeking an outlet for sports, he met colleague Jason Cooper (PSL Partner) and together they began organizing pick-up games for their architecture firm and eventually the broader building industry in Philly. 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 and Tim of competitor PSSC to bring you PSL!

Resident plant man // Home Brewer // not a very good bull rider
Quality Traits: calm, cool, collected. Good listener. Tries to be funny. 

He's in charge, but doesn't force us all to remember it everyday. He leads by example, stays focused, gently handles ridiculous situations, and ensures everyone stays encouraged and feels supported. Basically, he's everyone's older brother. Responsibility wise, he's responsible for everything.

Coordinating Extraordinaire // Owner of the world's cutest dog // Lover of Rice Chex
Quality traits: Personable - like cool uncle vibes

Pete is all about organizing  and structuring the fun. By day, he is the main guy behind Delaware Sports Leagues - everything from creating the schedule for each season  to coordinating details with facilities to building relationships with players, he's it. By night, he's probably the chillest bartender you ever did see.

Spin Extraordinaire // always appreciates a good joke // Calves like Adonis

To give you almost everything you need to know about the head of our Admin team, he has a really big computer so he can't see anyone. He says it's for working with really big spreadsheets organizing all of our leagues and players and whatever, but idk. Also, he - along with Garrett - is probably the fingers behind every email and the voice behind many phone calls (but watch out if you're a spam caller - he doesn't have time for you. He's busy and is not messing around). 

Interesting Facts:

Former pro wrestler prospect // won't eat lunch with you // will send you gifs  // creator of creative names

Currently watching? "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo"
If he could be an animal? An eagle with the head of a bear
If he could be a crayon color? Tie-dye

Lanie, Marketing

Not the cornhole champion // always covered in cat hair 
Quality traits: Will bore you with details. Won't be sorry about it. 

The newest member of the PSL team and already on a mission to revamp communication channels from staff to players. Also, heads up, she may (slash probably will) awkwardly stop you for a photo at your game or randomly on the street in your PSL shirt - never know when you'll end up on our instagram or website :)

First thing crossed off her bucket list? "visited a national park (well, like 5 now) in an attempt to visit every National Park as an adult!" 
Still on her bucket list? "scuba diving license"

Quiet at first // Freaky later on // Soccer Star

As the ringleader of the Operations team, Josh is responsible for scheduling field maintenance & shirt deliveries, ordering equipment, assembling said equipment, and driving the newest member of our Opts team - Mr. Jawn Deere. He is also known for consistently knowing the weather and dropping whatever he's doing (even on the weekends) to help clear up any weather - related damage to fields in order to keep our players happy and playing. Thanks Josh!

Victoria, Assistant Director of Operations
Nickname: Smallz // Soccer Star // carries things twice her size
Quality traits: tells it like it is, funny, task master

As part of the Operations team, Victoria gets **** done.  A lot of shirt deliveries, a lot of medal drop offs, a lot of entering score reports, a LOT of field leveling. She's mighty.

Direction of her toilet paper? "?My toilet paper hangs over; it's illegal to hang it under"
Favorite place in the entire world? "A toss up between Disney and the Wells Fargo Center, tough call"




Nick, Assistant Director of Operations
Ran the Philly Half Marathon and the Broad St Run // former Crew Star for Drexel // Only one to get the toilet paper question wrong
Quality traits: fun, down for anything, also a task master

Nick also works on the Operations team, which means he helps with making sure all registered players (remember: registered also = signed waivers) receive their shirts, ensuring fields are clean and safe to play on, and entering score reports.
