The Soccer Life - Scott Stewart

For the second Indy Eleven Front Office Soccer Life response this week, Scott Stewart fills us in on the basics of his soccer life. Scott has only been with the Indy Eleven as a full-time employee since March of 2016, but as I found out while reading through his weebly page (which I suggest you do as well), he has a long history of being involved with sports. Writing and broadcasting extensively during his time at IU. He's officially the "Web Content & Social Media Coordinator," but now I know how he got the gig doing some of the broadcasting of the Indy Eleven games. Thanks for answering the questions Scott!
