Announcing sports in high school
Another activity I did during high school was announce sporting events. When they were held at our school, I got to sit with the scorekeepers and over the PA system emcee the game.
I started by doing wrestling in my sophomore year then added boys and girls basketball as well as boys and girls track my and junior and senior years. I had a notebook in which I worte out my script for the game.
During this time, I also wrote wrestling stories for the sports section of the local newspaper.
When I graduated, I received a "leadership award" from my high school for my promoting sports and school spirit in part for the announcing gig.
