Glenn Zetter (Founder)
GZ Sports Report is founded by Glenn Zetter. Glenn lived his entire life in the Greater Pittsburgh area after being born , and was an avid Pittsburgh sports fan who followed all Pittsburgh sports for over 70 years. He was around for all 6 of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Super Bowl victories, 3 of the 5 World Series victories for the Pittsburgh Pirates, all 3 Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stanley Cup Championships, and 3 of 9 National Championships for the University of Pittsburgh Panthers football team. Among the many memories Glenn had from the many years he followed sports, his favorite memory was when he was one of the 50,327 in attendance to see the Immaculate Reception by Franco Harris in the 1972 AFC Divisional Playoff Game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders at Three Rivers Stadium. He was right on the 50 yard line, just a few rows back from the field, to see the miracle take place. Glenn took pride in Pittsburgh sports, and no matter how poor or how great the performances were by some of his hometown teams, he always supported Pittsburgh. He always wanted to write about sports and just months before his passing, he came up with a great idea to start a sports blog. He recommended the idea to us, and that is when we decided to start a sports reporting website in his honor.
