Honoring a hero

Staff Report

In a recent basketball game featuring South Webster vs. Minford, the athletic boosters from each school combined to recognize and honor Roger Gray, current WNXT broadcaster for his thirty-eight years of broadcasting and promoting high school athletic contests and athletes.

During his broadcast time Gray has covered basketball, football, baseball and softball. It is worth noting many from either South Webster or Minford locations. Gray also announced games for the former Portsmouth Explorers and recently hosted the popular Saturday Morning Sports Line.

It was pointed out at the recognition ceremony that Gray covered many evening events which usually resulted in him returning home at midnight or later and was often back at the microphone at 7:00 a.m. the next morning broadcasting.

Gray was thanked for his exemplary coverage, fairness, dedication and professionalism afforded our student athletes and teams.

Presenting the award on behalf of the sponsoring boosters organizations were Kristin Ruby, Minford Athletic Director and Gabe Havens, South Webster Athletic Director.
