Former Newton football announcer receiving state honor
“He had a unique delivery and when you heard him call a game at H.A. Lynn Stadium it was special. Burt Strike is a Newton football icon and is synonymous with Newton football,” said Ed Ergenbright, current Newton football head coach, and former NHS player.
Burt Strike called Newton home football games for 46 years. He began in 1966 and retired as the NHS football public announcer at the conclusion of the 2011 season.
“I don’t remember how I started. I was a teacher in Newton, coached middle school football, and I guess I just fell into it,” Strike said, sitting in the bleachers in front of the Frank Gilson Pressbox at Lynn Stadium.
