Letter from Taylor Twellman to Union fans

2011 Union color man lands lead US soccer analyst role

Philly fans,

As you may have heard I will be with ESPN for upcoming MLS/US Soccer/Euro coverage – what an opportunity it is to grow and learn the TV business.

Unfortunately that will take me away from doing games with the Union. I can't thank the Union family enough: Nick Sakiewicz for giving me a chance to learn next to the best in the business in JP Dellacamera. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime.

But I would be mistaken if I didn't thank you guys, the fans. I can't explain my gratitude to you for making me feel part of the family so quickly and will forever have a spot in my heart as I enjoyed my first year in TV so much. I loved coming to Philly more than you know.

Thank you very much and continue to make PPL Park the place to be in MLS.

-TT
