Kenneth J. Kendra is a lifelong fan of the beautiful game since the age of six when he started playing as a child. Not quite a great player for Vestal High School in upstate New York, he was good enough to play through four years at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy as an outside midfielder. After serving six years on active duty, he eventually settled down in North Carolina where he helped start the Official Liverpool FC Supporters Club in Raleigh. He has blogged numerous times about all things Liverpool on the LFC Raleigh official website. He lives with his wife Tori and their blue heeler Dakota in the Pittsboro area west of Raleigh. He can be reached via his website at kjkendra.com or through social media: Facebook (@kennethjkendra) and Twitter (@kjkendra11).
