About Our Team


Daniel Alers – Co-Founder

Daniel grew up in the United States as well as in Costa Rica. Living in Costa Rica for the majority of his teen years, he has become very fond of Latin America, especially the soccer played there. He is also an outspoken Spurs fan (as you will find). He hopes to bring a touch of flair and a pinch of spice to the team. He currently studies engineering at the University of Michigan.





mgMarc Geschwind – Co-Founder

Marc Geschwind is our Dutch soccer and MLS expert, who supports the two most storied teams: Ajax Amsterdam and DC United. When he’s not writing articles or recording podcasts he spends his time thinking about how the Bosman rule ruined Ajax. CR7 doesn’t feature in his top 10 in the world, he plays Chinese Super League Fantasy, and thinks Messi’s beard is better than Pirlo’s. He currently studies economics and political science at Swarthmore College where he plays as the false nine for the soccer team.





njNick Jackson – Co-Founder

Nick Jackson is the EiF Fantasy Football and Scottish Premier League specialist. He is half American and half British and loves nothing more than West Ham and DC United. He constantly wonders: could Messi do it on a cold Wednesday night at RFK with Steve Birnbaum snapping at his ankles? He currently defends the central midfield at Wesleyan University.






Thomas Horcel – Co-Founder

Thomas Horcel is the culprit behind all Chelsea-themed rants to come from the site. Hailing from the city of Santos, Brazil, his footballing ability has often been compared to that of Neymar and Pele; he is, after all, the all-time leading JV goalscorer for Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC. He currently studies international business at the University of Hong Kong.




Henry Trotter, out Editor in ChiefHenry Trotter – Editor-in-Chief

A Washington, D.C. native and experienced DC United hooligan, Henry directs our team of writers at EiF. In 2014 he fulfilled a life-long dream of watching Riyad Mahrez play live at the World Cup, where he watched Belgium defeat Algeria and learned enough Portuguese to embarrass himself. He supports Everton, and is just learning to hate Liverpool; Chelsea and Manchester United draw more of his ire. While writing for EiF, he aims to see games in as many stadiums as he can. His coffee consumption is a habit, not an addiction. He studies political science at the College of William and Mary.
