Scott Kessler, of BrotherlyGame.com and philly.sbnation.com, hosts the fifth episode of the "Unnamed Philadelphia Union Podcast" on the Philadelphia Union and soccer.
This episode of "Up & Up" is the first that features a former MLS player.
The interview is with Jared Montz, a former MLS player with the Chicago Fire. Montz has a very interesting story when it comes to both his playing career and his post playing career.
Like many soccer players in the US, Montz had to fight his way through the structure of the soccer pyramid. Though he started in MLS, injuries and things completely out of his hands steadily kept him from returning to the league when he left it.
Since retiring from soccer, Montz has been an active participant in charity and also has started his own online soccer academy company.
