Metro Detroit: Newsmakers April 5, 2010




Macomb Daily:

The next best thing to playing a professional sports contest is announcing it. That's according to Austin Drake, a L'Anse Creuse High School senior who was awarded second place in the state for his sports radio broadcasts by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters. "I love sports," Drake said. "I've played basketball, roller hockey, football, tennis. I did BMX bike racing, freshman, JV and varsity baseball, soccer. But I decided, about the time I was in middle school, that I wasn't going to make it in sports. So I figured, if I am not going to be able to get into that, what would be the second best thing? Getting behind a microphone and talking about sports, and getting paid to do it." This is Drake's second MAB award. Last year, he placed first in the Sports Play-by-Play category, earning him the honor of doing play-by-play as a student broadcaster for the MHSAA Radio Network for the 2009 Class A Boys Basketball Finals at Michigan State University, which he was asked to do again, for this year's win...
