WINTER PARK, Fla. – A new partnership between Full Sail University’s Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting and Rollins College Athletics gives sportscasting students an opportunity to lend their voices to the Rollins athletic department by calling all of the college’s home sporting events.
As part of the partnership, Rollins provides access for Full Sail’s students within the Dan Patrick Sportscasting degree program to call and provide color commentary to roughly 150 of Rollins home games and events, spanning both Men’s and Women’s sports at the college.
From soccer and volleyball to baseball, lacrosse and everything in between, Rollins athletes can now count on their fans to be engaged in the action as the Tar Nation tunes in to hear Full Sail students delivering play-by-play commentary live, online and over the airwaves on RollinsSportsLive.com as well as on WPRK.
“When you come to a sporting event at Rollins College you will now get the best of both Rollins College student athletes and Full Sail’s Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting students,” said Nate Weyant, assistant athletic director for Strategic Communications at Rollins.
This is not the first educational collaboration between the two schools. Last year, Full Sail and Rollins began an educational collaboration where students from Rollins provided their talents in musical performances – including individuals and ensemble groups, while students from Full Sail utilized their talents for music production and recording arts.
