  • Voice of the basketball Knights - Jerry Reynolds

    Since 1987, Jerry Reynolds has announced boys basketball games at Marion County High School. During the past 26 seasons, Reynolds has seen a lot of basketball and two teams he remembers the most during his tenure.
    "The 1992 and 1993 teams stand out in my mind because they went to state," he said. "In 1992, we went to the state for the first time in school history, and in 1993, we won the state championship. It just doesn't get any better than that."

    Since the baseball team started using a public address system in 2000, Ham Mattingly has been the only announcer the team and fans have heard. Mattingly became affiliated with the baseball team when current Head Coach Chad Spalding assumed his coaching duties in 1997. Mattingly's son, Joseph, along with a couple of his friends, Kerry Gorley and Alan Tungate, joined the team as seventh graders that year and that is what got Mattingly starting to attend home games.
