I have been doing broadcasting in my home since I was 5 years old. I had my public debut broadcasting college basketball at a local NAIA school in Angwin, California. The school is named Pacific Union College. Their mascot is a Pioneer. They are a great team and have an amazing coach named Greg Rahn. Greg disciplines his players. They played University of California Merced in my debut. They came back and beat Merced 59-57. They had great team chemistry and played well. Merced had good team chemistry, but were beat by a great team. I called it the Twin Game. Both teams had sets of twins. PUC had Ben and Dan Jazuk who played amazing while Merced had Aaron and Matt Laflin. It was an all and all great game.

I had the privilege to go back and broadcast another game. The Pioneers were taking on their rival, California State University Maritime Keelhaulers. Greg Rahn coached amazingly, but the Pioneers couldn’t pull out the win. They lost 67-58. Coach Rahn’s dad came on the court and said, “It will be even better when you beat them at their home.” I hope they do beat Maritime. They will play La Sierra tonight at 8:30 PM in Angwin. They beat La Sierra 82-69 the last time the teams met. They will have their last home game on February 7, 2019 at 7:30 PM against Simpson University. They will be on the road and play at UC Santa Cruz at 7:00 PM on February 4, 2019. They will also play in Vallejo, at CSU Maritime on February 9, 2019 at 8:30 PM. Their last two games are in Arizona. They will play in Mesa, Arizona at Benedictine University on February 14, 2019 at 7:30. They will play in Prescott, Arizona at the Embry-Riddle Eagles on February 16, 2019 at 8:30 PM. Then they will have California-Pacific Conference Playoffs. Come on out to the Covered Wagon in Angwin or any place they are playing and cheer for the Pacific Union College Pioneers!

I am so glad that Coach Rahn gave me the chance to broadcast for his outstanding team. He has coached them very well. He is an amazing coach.

Thank you Coach Rahn!
