Devin has experience reporting on crime, government, politics and sports. He won second place in the 2015 Gatehouse Sports Writer of the Year awards for a series on homeless youth in the Florida Panhandle and another series on why Florida’s public education system indirectly promotes the importance of high school sports over education.
