Geoffrey Detweiler

Associate Editor

Geoff Detweiler joined Broad Street Hockey in June 2009. He is a graduate of Drexel University School of Law after graduating with a bachelor's degree in History and Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Currently, Geoff lives in Fairfax, Va after growing up in Quakertown, Pa, 15 minutes south of Allentown. Despite neither parent being interested in sports, Geoff became a passionate fan of both the Flyers and the Phillies. Outside of that, he roots for everything Philadelphia, but only the Flyers and Phillies are able to ruin his mood with a poor performance. As the degree suggests, Geoff is a huge political junkie. Eventually he wants to work on Capitol Hill assisting an honest man or woman serve their constituents. Plus, anything you want to know about our 44 Presidents, Geoff most likely knows it. If you're curious, his favorite is James Knox Polk.

"We have high expectations here, and we have a lot of confidence as a team. When you have those things, you don't need to be perfect or to do everything exactly right. You just find ways to win."

I wish this were a quote from Jayson Werth or Jeff Carter, but no. It's from Sidney Crosby.
