Blind teen sports announcer gets time behind mic for Whitecaps

With fluidity and unbridled enthusiasm, Jonathan Welscott has announced the names of his classmates in front of scattered groups of spectators in Grandville Middle School’s gymnasium.
But the 14-year-old isn’t your typical announcer who calls all the action before him.
That’s because he is blind.
Jonathan, an eighth-grader, has called middle school and high school games in the past two years, but his voice was heard by an entirely different audience Friday night.
