Rick Johnston: the voice of TU Athletics

Fans of Taylor Trojan sports know the voice, and why wouldn’t they? For one, it doesn’t change regardless of the sport. Football, basketball and baseball? Yep. Volleyball, lacrosse and softball? Sure. Don’t forget every Taylor soccer game, or the one time that voice described a cross-country meet in the middle of a bean field. That voice TU sports fans are so accustomed to hearing belongs to Trojan play-by-play man, Rick Johnston. He’s been calling the action in Upland for nearly a decade, and he’s still as all in as he was on day one behind the mic.
