EUGENE, Ore. - Anyone who attends the Drake Relays or the Iowa Coed State High School Track and Field Championships knows that Mike Jay is an excellent track and field public address announcer.
Now Jay has earned the stamp of approval for being one of the best PA announcers in the country.
Jay has been named the recipient of the Scott Davis Memorial Award by the Track and Field Writers of America for excellence in announcing by a current track and field announcer.
The award came during the annual TAFWA Awards Breakfast held in conjunction with the recent NCAA Outdoor Track and FIeld Championships in Eugene, Ore.
"I am both humbled and honored with this award," said Jay. "It is extra special since I had the opportunity to work with Scott Davis a number of times before his passing and to be selected by media professionals in the track and field world, makes it extra special too."
