An NFL author at EssentiallySports, Anuj Tazhatuveetil is pursuing a Master's degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. Initially, he worked as a freelance content writer and later as a part of Sports404. An unquenchable thirst to learn about all things NFL and NBA, adding to a rather healthy obsession with playing outdoor sports like basketball, and soccer with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of this industry make him a sports aficionado. He still fondly remembers his first experience of a basketball game, which would pave the way for his incredible love and dedication towards his writing craft. Above all, his interest in NFL stems from the inspiring story of Tom Brady whose legendary status is well known. More recently, Anuj has found himself enjoying the greatness of various other players like Aaron Rodgers, LeBron James, Patrick Mahomes, Luka Doncic, and Kevin Durant.
