Jamie DeVriend

Editor-At-Large

Jamie grew up in Tampa, graduated from the University of South Florida, then settled in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, where he writes about things that aren't as fun as sports, but pay a lot better. He's the founder and co-manager of Voodoo Five, SB Nation's USF blog. For SB Nation Tampa Bay, he mostly stays in the background editing copy, but can't resist chiming in every so often. In his spare time, he roots for all of Tampa Bay's pro teams, watches pretentious movies, gets licked to death by his dogs, and dominates at a long list of quasi-sports like air hockey, Pop-A-Shot, kickball, putt-putt, Words With Friends, Skee Ball, and bar trivia.
