summaryExcerpt: “For almost 30 years, we heard his voice yell, ‘Touchdown Tech!’ over the airwaves. Now Bill Roth has a different play-by-play to call as he brings aspiring broadcasters lessons from beyond the classroom.
“‘Whenever there’s a great play, you want to nail the moment. You want to give the play its due,’ Roth said speaking about his love for calling football games for thousands of fans. For 27 years, that’s exactly what he did as the Voice of the Hokies.”
