Waynesboro, Pa. —
Will Kauffman has been the public address announcer for Waynesboro Indians football games for well over a decade, having replaced longtime teacher and PA announcer Louis W. “Bill” Kohler, who performed the duties for more than 30 years.
I just try to be clear, concise and timely in announcing the results of plays and we always hope that we’re accurate in identifying the players making the plays. That’s not a perfect science, so once in a while, we have a grandmother caterwauling at us that her grandson made that tackle, not the guy we announced. If the opportunity presents itself to have fun with the game or any other aspect of Friday night at the stadium, we’re not averse to taking advantage of that. We’ll even take shots at visiting personalities we know well. Greencastle-Antrim superintendent Greg Hoover now comes in disguise, knowing he’s fair game at any Waynesboro venue when I’m announcing.
