Matty Jollie, native Rhode Islander now residing in Naples, FL, is a music/business major currently running his own entertainment company in Southwest Florida. A Revolution faithful since their inception, Matty often sticks to the "x's and o's" of the game, as most of his articles look into the action on the field. When he's not tweeting from his handle @mattyjollie about the beautiful game, it's usually a stream of video game nonsense, and the trials and tribulations of early fatherhood.
