Joseph Groff

Joe Groff was a starting member of the roaming pack for the AYSO Golden Eagles when he was only 5 years old. He played for just one more year until he took time to focus on other sports such as basketball and volleyball. His Peter Crouch size helped him excel in those sports, but after high school he was burnt out. During his time working for the U.S. Consulate in St. Petersburg, Russia, he fell in love with football and the Arsenal who he has followed ever since. In between watching and playing footie Joe manages to study Law at Pepperdine University, where he hopes to publish other articles on fun stuff like the "overly broad interpretation of the Necessary and Proper Clause". He captains the Law School's intramural soccer team.
