Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

We are now 71 days away from Vanderbilt football’s August 27 season opener at Hawaii. 71 for the Commodores is offensive lineman Gage Pitchford. The 6’6”, 300-pound redshirt freshman from Newnan, Georgia, made his debut in the Tennessee game last season and will probably figure into the offensive line mix this season.

Vanderbilt is looking for a new public address announcer for football, soccer, and baseball. Among other things, they want you to submit a recording of yourself saying this:
