All I can say is, wow. This battle continued all offseason with no breaks in between and finally, he is reaping the fruits of his labor months later. Tuesday afternoon, Auburn Football head coach, Gus Malzahn, named true freshman, Bo Nix as his go-to-guy around 2:30pm. Nix, who’s dad is Patrick Nix, a former Auburn quarterback, has high expectations in 2019 and I have no doubt at all that he has what it takes to play to the best of his ability, week-in and week-out. His arm is certainly something to behold, and his legs aren’t too shabby either. Personally, I feel like Malzahn has made the best possible choice that will definitely help the program and the university as a whole. Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over, Auburn has named the former Mr. Football as their quarterback.
The life of a broadcaster is hectic to say the least. Constantly busy whether the sport is in season or not. Tonight, I start preparing for football season, I know, some of you might think “baseball season just ended.” You’re right. In the high school ranks it did just end. In fact, some teams are still playing on a diamond somewhere. But tonight, I turn my talents and eyes towards the gridiron and announce the current 7th-grade spring game vs. Johnnie Carr Middle School at Hohenberg Field. There are one-sport broadcasters and one-sport athletes and then there’s two-sport athletes and multi-sport broadcasters. For me, I belong in that last category. I have broadcasted baseball, football and basketball for some time now and tonight is now. Here’s to another football season and the joys that come along with being a multi-sport broadcaster.
