1. How did you start doing play by play? Do you remember your first
He doesn't have a picture, but our next Play by Play Q & A is from Sam Slieter. He has called basketball and football for most of the teams in the area now. You might hear him doing PA announcing for New York Mills football and baseball when his schedule aligns.
1. How did you start doing play by play? Do you remember your first game? I responded to a help wanted ad for a play-by-play announcer on Aug 30th in 2018 and an hour later I was asked if I could get to the Staples football field for the game at 7 pm that night to try it out. I trained on the mic that night and was immediately hooked. Unfortunately Staples Motley lost to Pequot Lakes that evening but I knew that calling games on the radio was a gig for me!
2. What's the craziest game that you've called so far? Just this last basketball season (2022) the Nevis girls were facing on the BBE Jaguars in the sub section championship and BBE was the favorite. The Nevis Tigers were able to pull off the upset by hitting 2 free throws with under 3 seconds to play to win 48-47. Nevis would move on to beat Braham 38-27 to win the Section 5A championship and earn a trip to the state tournament.
3. Which sport is your favorite to call? While every sport has its upsides for calling games, my favorite would be boys and girls basketball because of the constant action up and down the court.
4. Who taught you to do pbp? My first game on the air was with Leif Ronning in Staples. Also, when I first started, I would watch TV at home, mute the sound, and call games in my living room.
5. What is your favorite part of doing play by play? Just being able to stay around the game. Not every game is going to be a nail biter but it's always fun to follow teams throughout a season or multiple seasons and get to be a part of great high school sports.

High School Sports are starting soon and we’re catching up with our De La Hunt Media play by play announcers. We’ll start with Curtis Joe, who you heard announce volleyball, basketball and wrestling.
1. How did you start doing play by play? I started PXP in 1988 and did color for a few Cambridge BlueJackets Hockey games, took a few years off and started again with Delahunt Media in 2012!
2. Do you remember your first game? Yes I remember my first game, my brother scored 2 goals that game in a cold Mora arena!
3. What's the craziest game that you've called so far? The craziest game I called, probably a Thief River Falls Norskies game during a shootout when a player tripped over the blue line as he went in for his shot! I will not name the player but I think it’s on You Tube. I’ve had a few football, basketball and hockey games where we joked in the booth about last score wins!
4. Which sport is your favorite to call? My favorite sport to call has to be hockey, it’s comes natural after playing the game.
5. Who taught you to do pbp? Who taught me, that’s a tough one. I grew up listening to Al Shaver doing Minnesota North Stars games as a kid and borrowed some of his phrases and game lingo and probably the great Bob Cole on Hockey Night in Canada. And of course the Delahunt family throughout my career with them!
6. What is your favorite part of doing play by play? My favorite part of doing PXP, seeing the kids pure joy and love of the game and how much they leave on the ice, field or court on a given night and of course getting to know the kids as well!
