Gary Williams will be entering his seventh season as the stadium announcer for the Oakland Raiders. Prior to joining the Raiders, he spent 10 years as the football P.A. announcer for Stanford University. He's also done work for the Oakland Athletics and perhaps most importantly, has been the voice of the Niles Centerville Little League where his four boys have played for the past 20 years. In his real life, Gary makes his living voicing TV/radio commercials and corporate narrations. He was the announcer at the CBS affiliate in San Francisco for eight years and now records most of his work at his home studio. He is also a popular master of ceremonies at events throughout the San Francisco Bay area.

About the Clinic: The focus of this year's clinic will be on live announcing with feedback. Attendees will receive hands on training behind the mic from Gary Williams, who will coach and critique participants. Participants will hear others behind the mic and get valuable insight from listening and participating. In addition to working on the announcements that are typically made before, during and after a game, attendees will have the opportunity to announce game action. Football game footage will be projected on a large screen. Attendees will take turns announcing and spotting. This is the only clinic of its kind in Northern California this year. Don't miss it!
