Ed Gallo is a writer for the Last Word on Sports network, focusing on amateur wrestling and mixed martial arts.
He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh and graduate school at La Salle University in Philadelphia, where he studied counseling psychology.
An inherent curiosity for understanding human beings and how best to improve their lives fuels both his craft in writing and work as a career counselor. Gallo's interest in combat sports came from an unsuccessful brush with high school wrestling, an experience that taught him the old adage, "Once you've wrestled, everything else in life is easy."
