Dave:  After watching [the ESPN broadcast of the 2020 Mid-American Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships]  later, you did a great job. I knew you were the one that could make this broadcast great.  Thanks!

Clarity, engagement, enthusiasm, and track & field knowledge are a few of the many outstanding skills Dave brings to events. As important is his team spirit and collegiality, so sincerely appreciated by our experienced Armory announcers. We see in Dave a real winner and one who shares the view that modern track & field, at all levels, is one of America’s most exciting sports. It is not surprising that he has been invited to join our announcing staff and will be able to continue his first class coverage at some of the Armory’s most important track & field meets.
