Phenom is a multi-faceted sports media company with the goal of connecting the next generation of journalists and content creators. Our platform enables passionate young minds from around the world to share their sports knowledge across an array of organized media platforms, while also preparing them for a career in the sports media industry. Phenom offers a professional atmosphere throughout the company and encourages the contributors to create a diverse range of content.

Over 200 students, ranging from age 13 to 20, have created content for Phenom collectively covering all the major sports across all major social media platforms. The contributors can choose what content they would like to create, as well as what topics they want to talk about in their content.

Our content includes a range of short and long-form articles and videos, as well as interactive graphics, as we look to connect with the massive audience of fellow passionate sports fanatics on social media.

Phenom was inspired by ColeOnSports — a personal sports media platform — which Phenom’s Founder, Cole Nevins, created at age 8 in August 2012. ColeOnSports grew from an individual sports blog website ( to a platform on all the major social media platforms, including a podcast. After running his own platform for 7 years, Cole realized that other passionate young sports minds were struggling to create their own quality content, and build a solid following on their own. This prompted Cole to start Phenom, giving those students the special opportunity to work towards building a bigger collaborative platform, and allowing them to focus on creating quality content rather than worrying about a follower count.
