Jason Ruff

MSU alum Jason Ruff, now play-by-play voice of the Odessa Jackalopes, talks about the highs and lows of being an announcer in the NAHL. 

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin Segment of the Day, we invite Current Sports alum Jason Ruff, who is the Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations for the Odessa Jackalopes of the NAHL. Ruff discusses what life after graduating from Michigan State University has been like, taking us inside the world of play-by-play announcer. What has been the biggest challenge for Ruff since crossing the stage? Ruff also tells us a few 'horror stories' from being on the air. To close the segment, we get Ruff's thoughts on the NHL Playoffs.
