With the conclusion of Kentucky football’s home opener that saw the Cats put up 41 points, the Commonwealth Stadium public address announcer had a lot of work to do. Carl Nathe is the voice you hear, known for his signature “FIRST DOOOOWN KENTUCKY” call echoing through the stadium at every home game. UK Athletics allows us to go behind the scenes to take a look at what goes into his job, and gives a peek inside the pressbox. It’s pretty cool.
There were a total of 27 first downs and five touchdowns this afternoon against Miami. That’s a lot of excitement for Mr. Nathe. There is a job I think a lot of us would love to have.
