Sports: High School & College Seniors We Want YOU! #SeniorNightCT. Thanks to ESPN Sportscenter anchor, Scott Van Pelt, many kids will get the recognition they deserve! We're applauding this effort here in CT too!
This is just what we need right now! Join our friend Ben Darnell, Program Director of 97-9 ESPN Radio and our sports stations! This is an opportunity to get your story out there! Share photos, your sport, rank, hopes! Let the world know YOU ROCK! Many kids may have lost opportunities and scholarships because scouts didn't get to see them and neither did their adoring family or friends play their last games!
And for some, this was their last time in their sport as a high school or college athlete!...well NOW here is your chance to show us your stuff!
So many senior athletes in high school and college had their final year cut short. Sportscenter anchor, Scott Van Pelt, started taking submissions on twitter from seniors across the U.S. with the trending hastag #SeniorNight. Scott received 10,000 submissions immediately. It was overwhelming how many kids lost out on their senior sport experience due to COVID-19. Scott is doing an amazing job, but he is dealing with so many submissions that it is hard to single many of them out.
Let's make sports special for our state's senior athletes in Connecticut!I am taking submissions to post on 979espn.com and talk about on the Rob Dibble Show M-F 3p-7p.
Simply send submissions to my email or twitter: email@example.com or @ESPNBenDarnell
I am just looking for ...
Help me give some of our local athletes some love. They are more heartbroken missing out on playing their sports than most of us fans are not having any to cheer for.
