Meet: On The Move with SportzKelz radio show @onthemovewithsportzkelz Analysts are Tonya (Sportzkelz) Owner/ Founder, Coach Drew Green, Eric Ellis. Tonya (pictured) talks all about sports from a woman's perspective. Finally, right ladies?! The name SportzKelz is a nickname her friends called her because of her true passion for sports. This radio show has been a 10 year dream in the making that has finally come true with (not struggles) but profound opportunities along the way. "I have encountered major health issues, the passing of my father, working full-time while pursing my Masters in Early Childhood Education, starting a new career as a First Grade teacher, to now the launching of my new radio sports show & taking care of my family. The journey showed me that Strength comes when you step out on Faith and Favor. Once I eliminated the word "struggle" the blessings began. There is nothing I can't accomplishment if I have Faith and Favor." Like many of us she was raised in Columbus and is a die hard Buckeye fan. "Columbus has a great society of ethnicity and is full of growing entrepreneurship as well as economy. I love owning my own business, covering press for sporting events, explaining sports to modern audiences, and meeting new people." The goal for On The Move with SportzKelz is to be the most vibrant, emerging and relevant service. "One that inspires people to look at sports from different perspectives and capitalizes on rising opportunities to serve our audiences while giving back to my community." That's not all-- not for this hustling lady--Tonya has bigger plans too. Plans to complete her PHd in Education and take her radio sports show on the road to broadcast at National & local sporting events. We are proud to have Tonya as a role model for all woman in our community. To enter into her #Marchmadness swag bag drawing follow her on her social media pages and tag a friend below! She will announce winner on her radio show March 6th.

Fire on the air
The Columbus Fire has partnered with the Ohio School of Media with internships to record our games from different angles and to produce a documentary about the Team.
The documentary will follow the team from our January 7 indoor camp held at the The Sports Field House in Dublin. During this time select coaches and players will be the subjects of interviews.
Regular season games will be streamed with a link that will be provided after the game is complete. DVD's for the game will be available in about a week of the game being played.
When you support the best, you get the best.
