Dean Trombino joins The Desert Sun as sports intern

Dean Trombino has been a sports fan ever since a stuffed dolphin caught his eye as a child.

Trombino and his family were on their annual summer vacation to Lake Tahoe, and when they stumbled upon a street fair, the toddler was taken by a certain stuffed NFL mascot.

“My 2-year-old self picked up a dolphin plushie and never looked back,” he said, explaining that he’s been a committed Miami Dolphins fan ever since.

Trombino is a second-year College of the Desert journalism student who joined The Desert Sun staff this month as a sports intern. Born in Palm Springs, the 2021 Palm Desert High School graduate has lived in the Coachella Valley his whole life.

Growing up, he always had an appreciation for writing, but it wasn’t until he took a journalism class as a senior in high school that Trombino started to consider a future in media. He’d joined the school’s football team a couple years prior and quickly realized his future career also needed to involve the sport.
