Saahil grew up in Sunnyvale, California and was exposed to most, if not all, sports by the time he was six years old.
By the time he got to high school, I knew I wanted to work in the sports industry as it was constantly on his mind every day. While in college, he was a volunteer football coach for Fairfield High School in Colorado and reached the state championship with an undefeated record. After college, he knew he wanted to work in sports and took an internship with a sports memorabilia company called Grandstand Sports in New York City. He eventually moved on to become a soccer program administrator for an academy called New York Stars Premier. To further his career in sports, he has recently completed a dual graduate degree from the University of Central Florida with a Master’s in Business Administration and Sports Administration. With that experience, he has recently joined Sports Marketing Surveys USA and is excited to contribute to the team analyzing data to generate insights.
