“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.”

“I love Jack's work. His voice, pace and skill level are beyond his age. Simply put, Jack has a major league delivery. I believe he is as good a young broadcaster as there is in the country right now. Jack is on the fastest of tracks, and it will be a privilege to follow his career. I'm a huge fan!”
