    The title of longest running U.S. soccer broadcaster belongs to St. Louisan Bill McDermott. With the retirement of the legendary Seamus Malin, McDermott, who is in his 39th year behind the microphone, has now been broadcasting soccer longer than any current U.S. announcer.

    Soccer has been a part of my life for many years and has provided me with great opportunities, both as a player and an announcer, said McDermott. Ive been very fortunate to work with all the people Ive encountered along the way, and Ive taken a lot from each of them. Its shaped the commentator I am today. Even after 39 years, I feel very fortunate and honored to still love what I do.

    After playing soccer for most of his life, McDermott began covering the sport as a reporter in 1970 when he attended the FIFA World Cup in Mexico and provided reports for KMOX radio in St. Louis. In 1972, he began his career announcing games

    in the North American Soccer League, providing color analysis for St. Louis Stars away games on KPLR-TV in St. Louis.

    In addition to providing commentary for the first soccer game televised on ESPN in 1979, highlights to his career include: Color commentator for the inaugural season of MLS soccer for ESPN and ESPN2 Play-by-play and color analysis for NASL, MISL, and MLS teams in addition to teams on the collegiate level Morning host of FIFA World Cup Today, XM radios daily coverage of the 2006 tournament in Germany. Reported on all FIFA World Cups since 1970.

    In January of 2009, McDermott was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame as part of the St. Louis University Mens Soccer teams that won NCAA Championships in 1967 and 1969 and in recognition of SLUs 50 Years of Soccer. They dont call

    Bill McDermott Master of Ceremonies

    Bill Mr. Soccer for nothing. He is steeped in the history of the game, while also staying current. He knows it strategically, technically, and historically, said NBC sportscaster Bob Costas. As a one-time excellent player himself, his commentary carries additional credibility. Plus hes a universally well liked guy easy to work with, easy to be around - unless you object to his propensity for recycling the same dozen or so jokes and routines for the entire 35 years Ive known him.

    Twice over the course of the season Stanford trailed in the second half and rallied to win each time, against Notre Dame and Oregon State, with 2-1 victories. Taylor scored three of Stanfords four goals in those matches.

    And in the NCAA tournament, Taylor snuck a 25-yard free kick around the defensive wall and inside

    the near post for the clincher in a 2-0 third-round victory over Boston College, and knocked in the overtime winner with a sliding first touch to beat Oklahoma State 2-1 in the quarterfinals.

    Taylor attended Castilleja School in Palo Alto, just two blocks from the Stanford campus.

    Taylor was a youth club teammate of 2011 MAC Hermann Trophy winner Teresa Noyola with the Mountain View-Los Altos Mercury under Albertin Montoya, now the U.S. womens under-17 national team coach.
