He went to Kansas. Quickly got the Chiefs play by play job...I think at 23 or 24 years old. Also was doing Missouri basketball at such a young age.
He's probably in his mid-50's, but you'd think he was 80 because he's been doing games for so long. It's just that he had talent and got plum jobs (KC Chiefs wasn't really a plum job when he got it...just nobody else wanted it at the time) at such a young age.
