Antelope Football Returns to Post Sports Radio
Published Aug. 5, 2012 @ 6 a.m.
In the upcoming 2012-2013 school year, fans of the Post High school athletics will hear live coverage of their Antelopes and Lady Lopes thanks to an agreement with Post Sports Radio (PSR) and the Post ISD Athletic Department.
PSR will carry certain athletic events through a streaming online radio feed available at PostSportsRadio.com. "It's a great opportunity for fans who can’t attend the games to stay involved," said Jim Plummer, owner/operator of Post Sports Enterprises.
For the fourth consecutive year, Plummer and Allen Grisham will handle the play-by-play and color commentary duties during the football season. James Fannon comes back for his second season as the statistician.
The football webcast season kicks off on August 31 from Morton. The pregame show is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. with the game to begin at 7:30 p.m.
Plummer noted that the web address for this year's games has changed to www.PostSportsRadio.com.
In addition to football, the agreement allows for district away games for Antelopes and Lady Lopes basketball, softball and baseball. Also, playoff games for all sports will be added to the webcast schedule when necessary. Plummer said “last year we added basketball and this year we thought adding the away varsity softball and baseball games would be great additions to the schedule.”
Plummer brings more than 20 years of broadcast and audio production experience to the operation. For the past five years, he's also served as the public address announcer at the PHS home basketball games. Plummer graduated in 1987 from Texas Tech University’s Mass Communications Department.
Grisham’s knowledge of and enthusiasm for high school sports adds greatly to the quality of the webcasts. Two of his sons are products of Post High School athletics. One of them went on to complete a four year college football career at Hardin-Simmons University and was an acadmeic All-American. Also, Allen served as the Antelope Booster Club president for four years.
Fannon brings his knowledge of the game to handle the stats so they can be shared with the listeners through out the game. James has two kids in Post High School: a daughter in the marching band and a son who plays football.
Plummer explained that the internet opens up availability to the world “wherever Post sports fans are located.”
