Born and raised in Media, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia, Phil graduated magna cum laude from the University of Missouri with a degree in broadcast journalism. A collegiate athlete, Phil played lacrosse for the Tigers and was named all-conference three times and an Academic All-American his senior year.
