Kyle Martino ’99, Mike Carey ’01 Take Anfield By Storm
Last weekend, NBC Sports took its Premier League team to England.
Three Westporters were among the crew: Kyle Martino ’99, the very popular color analyst (and former Gatorade National High School Player of the Year, MLS Rookie of the Year, and national team member); Mike Carey ’01, one of the network’s top researchers, and Rebecca Lowe, the Britain-born anchor who now lives in Westport and is a huge Staples soccer fan.
