“I have been listening to Jack’s tapes and advising him on his broadcast technique for the last five years. Through diligent study, preparation, and practice, Jack has developed into a professional-level play-by-play broadcaster. With his passion and work ethic, I am certain that Jack will soon be broadcasting at the highest levels and I expect him to be calling NBA games one day.”
