My name is Seth Cordrey, I am 24 years old and attend Wilmington University. Since I was young, I have always been passionate about the Flyers. I played hockey for over 10 years on a local university junior ice hockey team. Time away from the game, has left me wanting to write about hockey and pursue sports writing.

Brendan Canney, Staff Writer

After watching the 1993 Phillies magical run to the World Series I was hooked on Philadelphia sports. Since then I have operated 3 personal blogs. I wrote, edited and produced my own sports podcast just so I could share my thoughts with anyone who would listen. Now I am privileged to have the opportunity to write and share my thoughts with you readers.

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
