(Video) Georgia High School Football Announcer Gets His Gus Johnson On
You can tell he’s really focusing on the action on the field because he makes sure to inform viewers of the ball carrier’s progress down the field in tidy, 5-yard increments (45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, TOUCHDOOOOOWWWWWNN!!).
There is much for information regarding this Georgia high school football game other than it involved teams from Norcross and Mill Creek, but in then end, none of the details are important as far as this discussion is concerned. The only thing that matters here is the simple enjoyment of listening to this guy ply his trade and work his craft. There is no doubt this guy has mad announcing skills and only needs that one fortuitous opportunity in order to have his talents properly showcased. Then, before you know it, he would make it big and put his own unique stamp on the world of sports broadcasting. Obviously, he’s hungry and his enthusiasm is contagious. His counterpart even appeared to try to get in on the histrionic outbursts. When he could get a word in edgewise.
