Seth Steere,Contributor

I have spent my whole life living in the great state of Oregon; growing up in a small town along the coast. My early life was dedicated to playing sports year-round. Football has always been my favorite sport, despite being involved in many: baseball, basketball, wrestling, soccer, tennis, and football. As a fan, the 49ers and Oregon State Beavers are the two teams I root for. The NFL Draft is also an interest of mine i.e. scouting and evaluating draft prospects.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
