(August 15, 2016) Two weeks ago, Adam Hildebrandt was doing high school and small college play-by-play in Moberly, MO. He is now onto his second job since then. Hildebrandt is following fellow STAA member Geoff Haxton as the basketball and baseball voice for his hometown Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
“My family and I are excited to get back to Tulsa and ingrain ourselves in the fabric of the Oral Roberts University community. I’m excited to continue the professionalism of the ORU broadcasts and bring my personal flair to it,” says Hildebrandt.
Hildebrandt will also call ORU women’s basketball, when schedules permit.
A remarkable series of events started unfolding for Hildebrandt on July 20th when he accepted a job as Sports Director for Wright Radio in Weatherford, OK and voice of Southwestern Oklahoma State University. On August 6th, shortly after he started in Weatherford, Haxton was hired away from Oral Roberts for the basketball and baseball job at Texas Tech. Hildebrandt’s name was mentioned to administrators at ORU. They contacted him, interviewed him and offered him the job.
Landing the Oral Roberts job represents a homecoming of sorts for Hildebrandt. Though he graduated from Oklahoma State, Hildebrandt and his wife Carissa’s families both live in Broken Arrow, OK, less than 15 minutes from the ORU campus. The couple has two children.
