Who is Jenny Taft?🤷

Not much could be said of a woman who has breathed and lived a life in sports. Although she is not a professional athlete herself, her contributions to American sports are almost unparalleled even though she will only be 34-years-old in 2023. Being the daughter of John Taft, who was once a professional hockey defenseman and part of the United States ice hockey contingent in the 1976 Winter Olympics, Jenny always had sports in her blood. Coincidentally, she would marry an ice hockey player – Matt Gilroy. With her birthday in September 5, 1987, Jenny Taft is now 36 years old.

For a time, Jenny Taft tried her hand in the sports of lacrosse. Still, more than actually playing sports, her track record in sports commenting shows just how good she is. To date, Jenny Taft is the moderator for the sports and podcast show Skip and Shannon: Undisputed and star college football sideline reporter for Fox Sports. She has worked her way from being the Fox Sports Girl, when she served as a sideline reporter for Minnesota’s female professional basketball team, to eventually succeeding other female big names such as Joy Taylor in the sports commentating and hosting field. Particularly in American football and soccer, her work on the sidelines has given great material for many sports analysts such as Joel Klatt and Gus Johnson. Her versatility in commentating and hosting is not only limited to professional and college football and men and women’s basketball as her resumé also includes hosting for other non-mainstream events such as dog shows.
