I’m really impressed with your work… The most impressive thing about your style is that you use the active voice over the passive voice whenever possible… On the subject of word pictures: phenomenal… You clearly pay very close attention to the game… You have a strong ability to ad lib, which is an absolute necessity for an elite hockey announcer… I give you an A for preparation.

Jack Edwards, Play by Play Announcer for the Boston Bruins (NESN)

I love your broadcasts of NESCAC hockey games… you’re an entertaining broadcaster.

George Brickley, All-Time Leading Scorer at Trinity College hockey and older brother of Boston Bruins’ Color Analyst Andy Brickley
