Scott Allen - Editor – I am a native of Phoenix, married to Andrea w/one son, Brady. I have been a fan since day one in 1988. I had a job with the Cardinals during seasons two and three in Arizona as a ballboy during training camp in Flagstaff. I am an avid sports fan who loves all major sports teams in Phoenix. I was even married at an Arizona Diamondbacks game. I grew up on sports and got my love for football from my father, who played college ball at Northwestern University. I have a degree in journalism from the University of Arizona.

Edgar Valenzuela Villezcas - Staff Writer: I’m a journalism student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at ASU trying to pursue my dream of becoming a play by play commentator or a sports anchor for ESPN. I’m a die hard AZ Cardinals and Diamondbacks fan. While I root for the Knicks and Thunder, my favorite basketball team is of course the Suns. I follow baseball, basketball and football almost religiously, and I’m always willing to talk sports.
