I consider myself extremely blessed to be around great people who love sports and are so dedicated to broadcasting. This weekend I returned to Georgia Tech for ACC Volleyball on ESPN3. Video Director Andy Blanton and his staff at Georgia Tech do a tremendous job in every aspect of the broadcast. I also had a new partner-in-crime this week as former GT standout Kele Eveland provided color commentary and I was blown away by her insight. She brought energy, passion, and in-depth analysis of every play on the court. It also helped that the match was a dramatic come back by GT to win after being down 2 sets and facing match point vs Boston College. The intro was pre-recorded, but we were standing directly in front of the GT band, who were extremely loud. The O’Keefe Gym is a classic arena, so everything echoes. With no IFB, both Kele and I were screaming at each other as we introduced the match. Once the match started it was really smooth sailing. I even got to do a post-game interview with GT Head Coach Michelle Collier for BuzzVision. It was a fantastic opportunity and experience. I will be doing eight other volleyball broadcasts at Georgia Tech this season as their ACC schedule continues. Next broadcast is vs Louisville at GT on October 9th at 7pm on ESPN3.
