My name is Scott Chappelear. I’ve been covering local sports, from youth to professional, in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area since 2000. This blog is simply an extra outlet for me to write about sports topics or anything else that gets me in a writing mood.
I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, went to college in San Antonio, Texas while in college. I have a bachelor’s degree in broadcasting from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I’ve lived in South Jersey since 1996.
I grew up a fan of the Atlanta Braves and University of Alabama sports, particularly football. I also root for UAB teams as well as the San Antonio Spurs, though I don’t watch a lot of NBA basketball these days.
I enjoy TV, movies, reading, board games, beer, good food, good friends and good conversation. I rarely get to have enough of most of those.
