Dave South Makes 2017-18 His Final Season As Voice of the Texas A&M Aggies

DAVE SOUTHCOLLEGE STATION—Dave South, the legendary voice of Texas A&M athletics since 1985, has decided to make the 2017 Aggie football season and the 2017-18 men’s basketball season his final year behind the microphone calling the radio play-by-play for Learfield’s Texas A&M Ventures.

The following is a statement from Dave South:

“After discussions that started last August with Texas A&M Ventures and my wife Leanne, I have decided that the 2017 Texas A&M football season and the 2017-18 men’s basketball season will be my last with both teams. I will continue doing play-by-play for the Aggie baseball team on a year-by-year basis.

“I read recently ‘God assigns certain jobs for certain times. While it’s important to respond obediently, it’s also vital we understand when an assignment is finished. Diligence and job completion honor the Lord, but resistance to change and refusal to let go can hinder His plan.’ (Journey, June 15, 2017, page 23)

“The 2017-18 season will mark my 47th year in collegiate broadcasting, and I just celebrated my 72nd birthday. There will be many people to thank as we make our way through this coming year. I will start with coach Jackie Sherrill and the late Ralph Carpenter, who extended the offer to be the voice of the Aggies prior to the 1985 season. My association with Texas A&M University and its athletics department has truly been a blessing. The friendships made and the joy of broadcasting Aggie games have made my years here unforgettable.

“I’m also honored to have worked with every entity that has held the broadcast rights to Texas A&M athletics. For those of you who have been around for a long time, you will understand this statement: I am the last of the Southwest Conference Exxon announcers still active in sports broadcasting.

“To the coaches, athletes, staff and athletic directors, our experiences together over these many years have created a lifetime of wonderful memories. If memories were memorabilia, there wouldn’t be a room big enough to hold my collection.

“To the Aggies and radio listeners who have been so gracious and kind for these many years, thank you for your words, texts, emails, and letters. I am humbled by your thoughtful generosity.

“Knowing God has a plan for every day of our lives, Leanne and I look forward to the future.”

“For most Aggie fans, Dave South is simply the Voice of Aggie Athletics,” Texas A&M Director of Athletics Scott Woodward said. “To us in the athletics department, he is much more than the radio play-by-play man. He is a part of our Aggie team and an outstanding Aggie ambassador. We appreciate all that he has done for Aggie athletics and wish he and Leanne all the best.”

A devout Christian, an American patriot, South has endeared himself to Aggie football, men’s basketball and baseball coaching staffs and players, as well as the entire Aggie athletics department.

“As a Texas A&M graduate who lived away from Aggieland, I came to depend on Dave to paint a picture in my mind of the athletics events,” said Jon Heidtke, Senior Vice President for Learfield’s Texas A&M Ventures. “Not only has he done a first-rate, professional job of broadcasting, he has done so with passion and conviction and his legendary calls of some of the most iconic moments in Aggie sports history are forever etched in our hearts and minds. We have been very fortunate to have a man of his principles and caliber calling the action these many years.”

South is married to his wife, Leanne, and they have two sons, Randy and Mike.
