When the topic of legends of Tiger Stadium comes up, it's generally dominated by dozens of players, and justifiably so. But just one voice has helped to guide the enjoyment of the millions (and millions) of fans in Death Valley: Dan Borné.
He has served as the public address announcer in Tiger Stadium and the Pete Maravich Assembly Center for 25 years, though that is just part of his long association with LSU. A graduate of the Manship School,who received a master's degree in mass communication in 1998, Borné was recently honored with the T.C. Shields Award, sponsored by the Louisiana Farm Bureau Federation, given to an alumnus for their outstanding volunteer service to the school.
