(October 4, 2019 — Press release) STAA member and 2018 STAA All-American Jack Benjamin is the new voice of the Nicholls State University Colonels.
Nicholls State is an NCAA Division I school in Thibodaux, LA.
“I am thrilled to join the Nicholls community and I look forward to discovering and sharing the stories of the student-athletes,” Benjamin said.
Benjamin joins the Colonels after serving as the primary TV play-by-play voice for football streams at Davidson, where he also hosted the weekly Coach’s Show and called games for the men’s basketball team on ESPN+. He replaces Bryant Johnson, who recently accepted a broadcast position at Virginia Tech after four years as the Colonels’ play-by-play voice.
Benjamin brings a wealth of broadcast experience to the bayou. He served as a play-by-play voice for various sports for a host of Division I schools, including the University of Virginia (UVA), University of Tennessee, St. John’s (NY), Winthrop, Wofford, and South Carolina Upstate for games broadcast on ESPN platforms, including ESPN3/+, ACC Network Extra and SEC Network+.
On the radio airwaves, Benjamin called games for Florida International (FIU) football, UVA women’s basketball, Winthrop men’s basketball, and Davidson baseball.
Benjamin attended Santa Clara University and graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in communication in June 2018. A month earlier, he was named an All-American and ranked as the third most outstanding collegiate broadcaster in the country by the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America (STAA).
