My name is Dylan R. Coyle.
I was born on October 1, 1998. Since I was 10, I have wanted to work in sports media.
I have fond memories of legendary Philadelphia Phillies announcer Harry Kalas calling the World Series winner in 2008. The Phillies played the Tampa Bay Rays that year, and in Game 5, they won it all for the first time since 1980. I was ecstatic. I kept replaying that scene in my head: “The 0-2 pitch, swing and a miss! Struck him out! The Philadelphia Phillies are 2008 World Champions of baseball!”
However, the moment that has stayed with me is not the play in itself. It is the call that Kalas made.
That was when I knew that I wanted to be a part of sports broadcasting and media relations one day. To connect with the moment, to create the moment, and to become part of the moment.
Since that day in 2008, I have been fortunate enough to meet and stay connected with people in the business and have gained a lot of experience in the field.
I have experience working in broadcasting and media relations in hockey, baseball, basketball, football, soccer, lacrosse, and eSport auto racing. However, hockey is the sport that sparks my passion.
I am the media director of the Temple University Ice Hockey Club and a media relations assistant for the Fox School of Business at Temple University. I worked in broadcast/media relations for the Reading Royals, a hockey team in the ECHL, for multiple seasons.
Demo reels and all other activities pertaining to broadcasting can be found in the Broadcasting section.
I used to write for the Royals and Sons of Penn, a well-followed Philadelphia Flyers blog. I also used to run Good Night, Good Hockey, which is a hockey blog that I created in 2016 and left in 2018. This is discussed in the Writing section. You can also find writing samples in that section.
I run The Takeover, which is a group event that I have organized since 2015. It has given hundreds of hockey fans the opportunity to play on the ice at the Wells Fargo Center, Santander Arena, and the outdoor rink at Hersheypark Stadium and to enjoy a tailgate and professional game that night. This is discussed in The Takeover section. You can also find videos and photos from The Takeover in that section.
You can view everything I have created in my career, including broadcasts, articles, and more, on CoyleCast.
I started college in fall of 2017 at Temple University and plan to graduate in May of 2021.
I am someone who understands the importance of skill, dedication, perseverance, and appearance. I will never stop being grateful for the opportunities I have been given and will never stop chasing my dreams.
