We wish Ryan well wherever he ends up in the professional world.

Senior Bobby Iddings, an award-winning sportscaster and WMUL volunteer since Fall 2006, was named the new sports director Friday night. He is already starting to carry on the station's "think big" mentality, securing a broadcast position at the Dean Smith Center for the UNC game Dec. 22.

wvprepsfund@gmail.com

Oct. 13 - Wayne County should be getting ready for the annual version of the always spirited Wayne-Tolsia rivalry. But instead, the entire county--and the surrounding community--is at a loss for words over a fire that destroyed Tolsia's football facilities today.

Here are some pictures of the devastation taken from the cell phone of TSHSFR cohost Grant Traylor. Click on the photos for a larger version.

This online editor normally doesn't editorialize, but this picture is one of the most surreal things I've ever seen.
These stairs once led to the second floor of the facility, but now they lead to nothing.

Many groups, including other area schools, have already announced that they would help in any way they can. TSHSFR, in cooperation with TriStatePreps.com, is doing its part as well and has set up a PayPal donation fund. Send all donations to wvprepsfund@gmail.com.

Photo Gallery: WMUL at Virginia Tech

Sept. 15 - The final score was embarrassing for Herd fans, but thankfully we had a silver lining in the proverbial cloud: college student volunteers got to call a football game in a BCS stadium. That's awesome regardless of the score. Click photos for larger versions.

Beautiful view looking toward the press box. WMUL's booth was on the top level, second from the right.
View from the WMUL booth straight down. And yes, we became very familiar with seeing the Hokies down here.
Marshall entered the field amongst a massive sea of white--and that small, figure-seven slither of green at the far right.
The WMUL crew L-R: Bobby Iddings (spotter), Ryan Epling (play-by-play), Adam Cavalier (color) and Leannda Carey (on-site reporter).

In case you didn't hear it on Saturday, or you want to hear it again, here is Leannda Carey's halftime story on Virginia Tech honoring Frank Loria (2:34).

Listen LIVE online (beginning Saturday at 11:30 a.m.)

Sept. 10 - Let's quickly mention that the Hokies will wear this helmet on Saturday, the same style helmet the team had when Frank Loria played there. Loria, who became Marshall's defensive backs coach, died in the 1970 plane crash.

The SIU football crew: putting faces to names

Listen to SIU highlight montage (1:59)

Sept. 7 - A record 757 people listened to WMUL's coverage of Marshall defeating SIU 31-28 Saturday at the Joan, so we felt it was appropriate to show you the staff who brought it to you. L-R: Bobby Iddings (sidelines), Dave Traube (spotter), Adam Cavalier (color commentary) and Ryan Epling (play-by-play). Here's a larger version.

The main reason for the record audience was that flagship station WDGG (93.7 The Dawg) is no longer streaming football games due to circumstances beyond their control. WMUL will partially fill the void, as we will be covering nine of the 12 games this season. We will not be covering the Tulane, UCF or UTEP games.
