Trevor DeGroot is a field reporter for 98.7 The Fan. Whenever we need something to be covered in the bay area (breaking news, games, practices, special events, etc.) he is there!
Trevor was born in Tampa, ironically right next to One Buc Place, so it’s no secret that his favorite football team is the Bucs. He also attended the first Rays game in franchise history in their inaugural 1998 season. Tampa is in his blood, and he is thrilled to be covering the teams he grew up watching as a kid.
After playing 4 years of high school football at Wesley Chapel High School, Trevor went on to Webber International University to play college football. He would later transfer to Florida State University for his remaining 3 years, where he began to transition into sports media. It was here where Trevor got his first taste of sports reporting, appearing on the “Seminole Sports Magazine” show, which airs weekly on Sun Sports. His first ever interview was with FSU head football coach Jimbo Fisher on National Signing Day.
Trevor graduated from FSU in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Management, and a minor in Communications. He continues to be a big supporter of Florida State, and is a member of the FSU Alumni Association.
Since graduating, Trevor has been working his way up the ladder, working with many personalities in the Bay area. And before joining 98.7 The Fan, Trevor was the On-Camera Talent for the Tampa Bay Storm at the beginning of the 2013 season.
Since joining The Fan, Trevor has cast a wide net in covering Tampa Bay sports. He’s spent the majority of 2013 covering the Rays and Bucs. He also covers the Tampa Bay Lightning, USF Bulls football, PGA Golf, the 2014 Outback Bowl, and more!
Trevor is also adding soccer coverage to his resume. He has joined the Tampa Bay Rowdies soccer club as their color commentator for the 2014 regular season! His dream of being in the booth calling live game action for a professional sports franchise has turned into reality!
