Meet the team behind Inside American Football Magazine
Garry Neesam - Editor & Webmaster
Garry's interest in American Football started as a teenager in the late 1970s when he used to listen to live games on the American Forces Network in Europe in the early hours. When the game came over to Channel 4 in the 1980s he became even more hooked & together with 3 other guys, started his own team, which he ran for several years.
Most of his playing career was as QB but 2 broken legs meant moving to a less dangerous position and his playing career ended as a tackle & player/coach.
Marriage & kids took him away from the game until his passion for photography and the sport found him back on the sidelines in 2009.

Peter Barker - Staff Writer
Peter is a Philosophy and Journalism student and another Hurricane from Hertfordshire Uni.
Despite competing in a wide range of sports for most of his life, Peter's first contact with American Football was not until a flag-football coaching course in 2008, taken to complete a more general Community Coaching Award. Joining the Hurricanes in 2009, Peter threw himself fully into the sport, becoming one of the most committed NFL fans at the Uni and developing admiration for the Vikings and Jets, but inexplicably supporting Cincinnati.
Peter is Sports Editor for FAME, a student-supporting, charity-funded website and magazine based in Hertfordshire.
Nathan Sharrocks - Staff Writer
Nathan is a Journalism student at the University of Central Lancashire.
He became interested in American football when him and a group of friends chose to support an NFL team each in 2001. Nathan picked the New England Patriots because of the 'England' part of the name and has been hooked on the sport ever since. He has also got into NCAA football, following the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and more importantly the British game, following his local team, the Lancashire Wolverines.
Nathan mixes his passions of American football and writing by running NFL Digest, a blog offering opinions on the National Football League.
