Both Jeff Reeves and the Copper Hills guys do a fantastic job. However Jeff has
been around so long that he deserves the accolades in this article. Keep up the
I'll take the guy who calls Copper Hills Gizzly games over anyone. I find
myself going to the games to listen to his call, rather than the basketball
itself.Check his efforts out sometime. He's really good!
Jeff's voice takes me back to a time and place during my high school
tourney games. Interesting that he started back in 1993 which was my senior
year and his voice is overheard on our basketball teams highlight video from
that season (Yes - VHS). It is always a joy to go to State Tournament games at
Utah & Webeer State and hear his voice where you fill like you have arrived
for exciting times. Brings back memories and excitement for tournament play.
Great Job Jeff and thanks for putting in the time.
If the corresponding TV people who just did the Desert Hills/Pine View game had
put in a fraction of the time that Jeff does, so many of the names that are now
forever chronicled on video for these kids, their kids, grandkids and so on
might enjoy, would have at least been correctly pronounced...over and over
again!Yes, it is part of the ambiance, the "We've arrived"
atmosphere when you first hear Jeff's voice every year at RES. It
resonates throughout the entire stadium and adds such a professional feel to
entire experience. I was just mentioning to my son while we sat and watched the
Juan Diego/Pine View game how Jeff's voice brings back that same old
feeling again.Thanks for drawing attention to it!
Jeff is the best I've ever heard. His timing is perfect. He makes going
to the state tournaments a blast. I recall first hearing him when East and
Murray met in the 4a state finals in basketball. The Johnsen Brothers.
This guy is the best. He really does what he says and comes prepared. Ultimate
professional. I always enjoy hearing his voice at the state wrestling meet.
Hope we get many more years out of him.
