WASHINGTON - Fans who have attended sporting events at American, Georgetown and Howard universities have likely heard Shellie Bowers' voice.
It's the one blaring on the speakers, calling the shots, penalties and halftime announcements. Known for being on top of his p's and q's, Bowers pronounces umpteen-syllable names with clarity and adds a little flair with rhymes.
Bowers is the contracted pa announcer for colleges and D.C. public schools throughout the Washington area. He worked for DCPS before he became a full-time announcer. He announces just about every sport -- namely men and women's lacrosse, soccer, basketball, baseball and football. read story
