Our Game Plan (1).png

We are a team of Western PA journalists that were raised admiring the rich sports history of the Beaver County area and beyond. We have devoted this blog to being a positive sports journalism outlet, celebrating Western PA athletes and coaches. We'll be catching up with players pursuing professional careers, retired/current athletes making a difference in their communities, and much more. Please subscribe and follow us on social media. We launched in August 2019 and are looking forward to writing!

Meet the Team
Emily Bondi 

Hi everyone! My name is Emily Bondi. I grew up in Pittsburgh P.A. and graduated from Westminster College in 2019. My background is in Broadcasting and Digital Communications with an emphasis in social media and sports. Right now I am living in Washington D.C. working as Press and Staff Assistant for the Homeland Security Committee. I also freelance write for Team All American, which is a youth baseball program in the Pittsburgh area. I started Impactful Sports with Taylor so we could pursue our sports passion. I am a huge sports fan and love writing about it even more. I'm excited to see where this journey takes us. So follow along and get ready to read some great sports stories! 

Taylor Nichol

Hello! My name is Taylor Nichol and I grew up in Monaca, Pennsylvania. I was fascinated with the rich history of Beaver County sports since I was 3 years old. I am the fifth generation of a "football family" and admittedly live for football season. In 2018, one of my career dreams came true when I became the first woman in Beaver County Radio history to announce football on the air. The game was Aliquippa vs. Hopewell. I graduated from Westminster College in 2016 with a degree in Broadcast and Media Production and I am currently furthering my Sports education through Columbia University. I am a lifelong Pittsburgh sports fan and root for both Pitt and the Texas Longhorns! Emily and I are excited to have a platform to pursue our true passion. Thanks for stopping by and supporting our site!
