A young sports reporter with a “smooth” demeanor still beyond his years has gone viral after a thoughtful post-game interview with Las Vegas Raiders star Davante Adams.
Sports4free Youth Media Reporter Jeremiah Fennell joined “Fox & Friends” Monday to discuss his interview with a broad audience and his work as a youth sports reporter.
“When you’re very passionate about what you do, you take it really seriously. So I always prepare for my interviews, and I always try to practice that, get it right the first time,” Fennell said.

The 10-year-old Raiders fan’s speech, in which he effortlessly recited Adams’ player stats and asked about his best childhood memories, was shared by the team on Twitter last week, calling Fennell their “newest (and cutest) reporter.” The video has been viewed more than 4 million times.
Fennell detailed how he kept his cool under pressure while fulfilling his “dream” of interviewing star NFL players.
“I wasn’t star-struck or anything,” he said. “I was just there talking to him like a regular reporter, you know? So I wasn’t really scared because we’re all human at the end of the day.”

Fennell, who co-hosts Lawrence Jones, Pete Hegsett and Rachel Campos-Duffy praised as “smooth” and “impressive,” was then asked about rumors of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady possibly playing for the Raiders next season.
“Tom Brady has always been my favorite quarterback my entire life, and the Raiders have always been my favorite team my entire life,” Fennell said. “So if they get mixed up and Tom Brady goes to the Raiders. It would be like a dream come true for me. And hey, maybe I can interview him.”
