Public Address announcer/ Play by play

Can the announcer at a high school game do this-

"And the ball goes into the corner to blank, he shots a 3, rebound by Johnson"

I am not certain, never had it happen before.

No. I would consider this sound effects.

1-18

So he was doing play-by-play over the sound system?

I don't think that is correct. many gyms do commentary like, "Johnson at the line for 2"

Most do it during dead ball periods. There's no way I'm allowing play-by-play during live ball action over the PA.

Combination of 1-18 and 2-3.

Talk about distractions.

commentary < > play-by-play.

I agree with Tjones. If they just announce who scored and who fouled, it's okay. Beyond that, it isn't.

He shots a 3? This guy is a pretty bad announcer. Was his name Billy Packer?

We've got one in my area that just looks for things to say.

When there's a dead ball period, you can just see the wheels turning....
"Want to remind you, we'll be here until there's a winner... also, there's hot dogs and soda for sell." "Hey, if you've got a birthday, come on down and we'll announce it for you."

Sometimes It's always brutal.

False Double flagrant on announcer. Play resumes with the two smallest players Rho-Sham-BOing at mid court for ball out of bounds at half court. New announcer call the play by play. I can't find the book reference.
