Ten-year-old Jeremiah Fennell has an impressive post game interview with Las Vegas Raider, Davante Adams and it has gone viral!
Fennell, a Sports4free Youth media reporter, stopped by Fox & Friends to give the full scoop on his interview with the Las Vegas Raider wide receiver and to discuss his work as a young sports reporter.
Fennell said, “When you’re very passionate with your job, you really take it seriously. So I’m always preparing for my interviews, and I’ve always tried to practice it, get it right the first time.”
During the interview, Fennell recited Adams’ player stats and asked about his greatest childhood memories. The interview was shared by the Raiders organization in a tweet, earning Fennell a new title…the teams “newest (and cutest) reporter on the job…” Enter here viral video status, as the video has been viewed over 4 million times.
Fennell told the Fox & Friends hosts that it is his “dream” to interview NFL players and he doesn’t get nervous or starstruck at all while doing it. He keeps it professional, giving credit to his parents for the lesson…”lead[ing] by example.”
“I wasn’t starstruck or anything. I was just there just talking to him [Adams] like a normal reporter, you know? So I wasn’t really scared, because in the end, we’re all people. [My parents] definitely helped me to become the man that I am right now and the man that I will be in the future.”
As a Raiders superfan, Fennell also weighed-in on the swirling rumors of a Tom Brady trade to the Vegas team. And of course, Fennell put his wish out there in the universe to potentially interview the star quarterback.
“Tom Brady has always been my favorite quarterback my entire life and the Raiders have always been my favorite team my entire life,” Fennell told the trio. “So if they mix together and Tom Brady is on the Raiders? That would be like a dream come true for me. And hey, maybe I get to interview him.”
We are hoping that both of those come true and we will definitely be waiting and watching for that interview!
Congratulations, Jeremiah. This is unquestionably just the beginning of us seeing you on the sidelines!
