Philly Soccer Show: Taylor Twellman

By Greg Olandini

The KYW Soccer Show has a special guest for this editon. My co-host Adam Cann and I are joined by MLS legend and Philadelphia Union color commentator Taylor Twellman.

Twellman was the fastest player reach 100 goals in MLS, 101 in all and all with New England Revolution. But a series of concussions forced him from the field and into the broadcast booth. We chat abouts the Union’s strengths and weaknesses so far in the season. We also get into how he is growing into his new role as commentator.

Twellman candidly speaks about the head injuries that lead to his early retirement. He has become an advocate for both the education and treatment of head injuries in not only soccer, but other sports as well.
