Kevin Fitzgibbons: who is he?

Fitzgibbons, a University of Miami student studying sports and fitness administration and management, began creating videos and material in junior high school.

After seeking for an NFL gig, Fitzgibbons—who has also worked as a freelancer for Bleacher Report since 2021—was hired to cover Miami Dolphins home games.

Fitzgibbons stated,

“In a matter of seconds, one of the most memorable moments of my life flipped completely upside down. Though I wish I could have done anything to stop it, I understand why the NFL had to make this choice. Nevertheless, I’m appreciative of Tyreek’s recollection. I never took a day for granted because this was the best job I had ever had. “
