Anoop Kathrani was born and raised in Jersey City, NJ and currently resides near Houston, TX where he covers and follows the Houston Dynamo. Anoop was exposed to soccer when the New York Red Bulls were known as the New Jersey MetroStars and played at Giants Stadium. Living in the most sports-crazed area of the country, Anoop had no other choice but to become a complete sports fanatic. When he isn't watching MLS, he's watching and following baseball, hockey, basketball, and football (NFL).
Anoop graduated from Rutgers University School of Communication in 2012 and has worked for the Newark Bears, a Canadian-American League team. He then moved to Houston in October 2012 and began writing for Football.com shortly after.
