TAMPA, Fla. – USL League One today announced the broadcast team for the 2022 USL League One Final will include play-by-play voice Josh Eastern and USL lead analyst Devon Kerr, accompanied by Marion Crowder reporting on the sideline.

The 2022 League One Final will serve as just the second match in league history and first final to be broadcast on national linear television. Additionally, audio of the call on ESPN2 will be simulcast nationally on SiriusXM FC (Ch. 157).

Kerr is the lead analyst for the NCAA Men’s College Cup and for Concacaf events such as FIFA World Cup Qualifying and the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League. Earlier this year, he called the 2022 Concacaf Champions League Final and was the only individual to provide analysis of each round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, including at field level pregame from the final from Exploria Stadium. Kerr also appears on ESPN, NCAA, EA Sports and MLS platforms. He played collegiately at Stetson University and competed in Germany’s Regionalliga with Altona 93.

Serving as the pitch-level analyst, Marion Crowder will make her League One broadcast debut after previously serving as an analyst for the NWSL on Paramount+, SEC women’s soccer on ESPN and SEC Network, and the USL Championship on ESPN+.
