Longtime Leesburg Radio Voice Is Back
Sports
March 20, 1996|By Joe Williams of The Sentinel Staff

LEESBURG — Jack Wilson is back behind the microphone, broadcasting Leesburg High School
baseball games to players' parents and family members, fans and shut-ins no longer able to get out
to Pat Thomas Memorial Field.

For Wilson, 66, returning to the broadcast booth was one of the driving forces during the past five
months of recuperation from three operations - including triple-bypass heart surgery on Oct. 13 - that
he had in back-to-back fashion last fall.

Now, Wilson is feeling better with each passing day.

''It was just like old times,'' Wilson said about climbing behind the mike for Leesburg's first home
baseball game on Feb. 27 vs. Gainesville Buchholz. ''The only thing was I got a little tired. I ended up
turning it over to (color commentator) Jack (Mitchell) a little more.

''I did three innings of play-by-play and the rest of the time I did color. Mitchell is real good about being
there and so is Lenny (Dickerson, who spells Mitchell and Wilson on occassion during the
broadcasts).''

The surgeries knocked him off the air during the football season for one of the few times in his 32
years of broadcasting Leesburg athletics.

But Wilson, who has never missed a broadcast of a Leesburg baseball game during that time,
returned to his familiar play-by-play position on WQBQ-AM (1410) for Leesburg's baseball games. He
plans to do Leesburg's football games in the fall and he may also reinstitute a Wednesday night
sports talk show called ''Coaches Corner'' in the fall.

The format of the talk show includes informal chats with area coaches and athletes.

''I have always done it for the kids,'' Wilson said. ''They love for you to broadcast the games. Every

once in a while, I get down, thinking I am too old to still be broadcasting these games, but a couple of
kids will ask you about it and I jump right back on it.''

As for any more interruptions in Wilson's broadcast schedule, he isn't planning on any.

''I plan on doing it for a while longer, but you never know,'' Wilson said. ''Things are going good, real
good, right now. It is always good when you are winning and so far we have.''
