In December, the sophomore class postponed their annual Powderpuff Football game fundraiser.
This postponement followed a earlier rescheduling, too.
The final challenge this spring was due to a lack of players
Despite the cancellation, an aspiring journalist still used the reschedule for an opportunity and I joined in. Sophomore Luke Chrissis hopes to be a sports broadcaster, and his first opportunity to get behind a stadium PA system came from Coach Ed Kurtz opening up Lenzner field to let Luc practice.
Luke reflected on the experience during a short interview on Friday afternoon, May 19.
“…it was a really cool experience, I mean the setup was really nice and Coach Ed taught us how to work the machines.”
“I really wanna do something with this in the future…even if its in front of everybody or just behind the scenes, I don’t care. I just love this field of work…anything with sports is cool.”
Was he bothered by the cancellation?
“…it sucks power-puff was cancelled, and I really wanted to announce,” said Luke, “but I think its cool that I was about to be apart of something that like…. I feel like its important to have people know who you are (as a broadcaster), and the more you do it the more well known you become.”
