Hello, and welcome to my webpage. I hope you enjoy your visit.
My name is Drew Blevins and I’m the Director of Communications and Play-by-play voice for the Southern Professional Hockey League’s Fayetteville Marksmen. I also have a role as the Director of Community Outreach and in helping the team spread its messages across multiple platforms to help impact the largest audience.
I am a proud graduated of North Carolina State University with a major in communication media and a minor in journalism.
My passion is for accurate and engaging sports coverage. It is my belief that a well-covered sports team helps create a stronger community, builds fan bases and enhances the positive experience of athletics for everyone involved.
The last two seasons I served as the vice president of media relations for the FPHL’s Carolina Thunderbirds, calling 63 games for them in two COVID-abbreviated seasons. While with the Thunderbirds, I wrote and designed a comprehensive new media strategy for the team including a brand new, video-streamed broadcast for both home and away games, the first team in the league to do something like that at that level of quality.
Before I began my professional journey, for four years, I worked at PackTV at N.C. State serving as “The Voice of Wolfpack Ice Hockey.” While at N.C. State. I also called games for NCAA Division I men’s and women’s soccer and softball as well as other club sports such as baseball, basketball, lacrosse, volleyball and rugby.
Furthermore, at N.C. State I created and developed “The Takeaway” a series of blogs recapping and detailing Wolfpack football and men’s basketball. In my final two years, I started and served as an on-air host for “The Howler” a weekly podcast about N.C. State athletics both past and present
Outside of college, I have served as the Director of Media Relations and play-by-play voice for the Coastal Plain League’s Wilson Tobs and the Assistant Director of Media Relations and play-by-play voice for the United States Premier Hockey League’s Carolina Eagles.
At both of these places I wrote informational game notes and stat packages as well as called the game over the internet. In Wilson, I developed brand identities over social media as well as fostering quality relationships with the local and league media sources.
