PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Eagles have millions of fans, but Giovanni Hamilton may be their most passionate.

We were first introduced to Giovanni last summer, when his meeting with Carson Wentz at training camp brought him to tears.

Giovanni has Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, which his mom describes as a cross between dwarfism and muscular dystrophy. He has endured 15 surgeries in his 13-year life.

"You know it's hard but I think it would be harder if I never discovered football," Giovanni tells Action News.

Yes, football is his saving grace and he can't help but relate to the Eagles and their underdog story. And now, he has an outlet for all of his passion -- a weekly podcast - "Philly Sports with Giovanni" on Eagles Brawl Network.

So what's the key to being a good host?

"Just do your research, watch film, take notes," he says.

He's got a star-studded guest list, like former Eagles Torrey Smith and Chris Long.

And maybe he'll be a future sportscaster someday.

"You know, it's always been something I've wanted to do. I want to be a head coach for the Eagles but this is definitely a good second plan," he says.

Giovanni's dream guest list? Brian Dawkins, Carson Wentz, and Zach Ertz.
