Eliot, a life long Philadelphia “4 for 4″ sports fan, is currently finishing up his degree in Sports Journalism at Temple University.
Project Manager for New City Community Press, his first book labeled “More Than A Game: Life Lessons from Philadelphia Sports” is due out this summer. The book features interviews with, among others, Leonard Weaver, Mike Richards, Sonny Hill, Rueban Amaro Jr, Joe Banner and Ed Rendell. Eliot has also begun work on the autobiography of Jim Ellis, subject of the major motion picture “Pride”, and founder of the famous PDR swim team.
The Central High graduate’s writing has appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer as well as his personally run blog, Philly Stand Up Sports.
Eliot credits his father for his interest and strong background in journalism, and hopes to write about the up and downs of Philadelphia sports for the rest of his life.
