The Junior ‘Noles Announcer Contest closes on Oct. 25, 1999 with
the grand-prize winner receiving the following: the opportunity to meet
Coach Bowden, the opportunity to appear on the Seminole Sports Radio
Network Nov. 13, 1999 pre-game radio show, Seminole Sports Network gear,
special game seating for the Nov. 13, 1999 Maryland at FSU football game,
and Maryland at FSU tickets for his/her family.

Seminoles announcer Gene Deckerhoff said, “There is nothing more
exciting than a college football game. Capacity crowds, fight songs,
marching bands, and of course the game, itself: the big plays, the goal
line stands, fans going wild wearing their school colors…. And, you know
what? Describing all of that to radio listeners all over the state on radio
and all over the world on the Internet is even more exciting. I can’t wait
for our Junior Voice of the Seminoles to join me in the booth. I hope we
say, ‘Touchdown FSU!’ a lot of times.”
