Local kid seeks votes for sportscasting dream
Drew Morgan, a 13-year-old Tecumseh High School freshman, wants to be a sports broadcaster and he needs his hometown’s support. Drew went to Los Angeles during summer to attend Play-by-Play camp and was able to interview UCLA football players, including Jerry Rice’s son. He also attended a L.A. Dodgers game where he did play-by-play. While watching a recent Detroit Tiger’s game he saw an advertisement for a KidKaster contest, sponsored by Sam Bernstein Law Firm, so he submitted his entry, consisting of a one-minute audition. His entry was chosen as a finalist for the Kid Kaster contest. The finalist who gets the most votes will get some prizes, including the chance to interview a Detroit Tiger baseball player and have part of the interview shown on FOX Sports TV. Drew has chosen Tiger’s pitcher Duane Below, the hometown favorite from Britton, to interview if he wins. Vote for Drew in the KidKaster contest by going online to www.callsam.com/bernstein-media-center/call-sam-sports. Vote from Saturday, Sept. 3 through Monday, Sept. 12. Only one vote per person will be counted.
