Aggie broadcaster honored by Cotton Bowl

FWAA member Dave Sourh, the radio play-by-play voice of Texas A&M since 1985, received a plaque from Cotton Bowl officials and was treated to cake before the Texas A&M-Arkansas game on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. South, who has called 10 Cotton Bowl Classics for the Aggies — more than any other school announcer in the bowl’s history — will retire from football announcing at the conclusion of the 2017 season.  South (center) received the plaque from the Cotton Bowl’s Charlie Fiss and Michael Konradi, both FWAA members, in the press box. The plaque included a picture of the Texas A&M radio crew, including South, from South’s first appearance in the Classic, the 1986 Cotton Bowl game between the Aggies and Auburn.
