Sports director and sports personality for ABC 6/Fox 28 TV Clay Hall will be the featured speaker at the interdenominational Men’s Prayer Breakfast at 7 a.m. on April 13 at the Bucyrus Community Hospital Cafeteria.
Central Ohio native Hall is an Upper Arlington High School and Mississippi State University graduate who used to caddy at the OSU Scarlet Course as a teen. He later won a few bucks from ABC’s Brent Musberger in a Buckeye golf outing on the same course.
Hall has covered his beloved Buckeyes on game day and beyond the game events like the crowning of two Heisman Award winners: Troy Smith and Eddie George.
Every fall, Hall’s principal duties include Ohio State football. Viewers can see him on the field for pre-game and post-game coverage on the Emmy Award-winning The Football Fever on ABC 6 TV. Whether he’s in the Shoe or on the road, Hall sets the scene for one of the greatest traditions in college football.
A three-time Associate Press winner, “Best Sports Operation in Ohio,” Hall has been Sports Director of WSYX and WTTE-TV since 1995. Hall takes views “Beyond the Game” weeknights at 6 p.m. on ABC 6, introducing viewers to athletes and sporting events and special stories of the human spirit’s triumph over adversity.
Away from work, Hall is a sports fan, watching his three sons Jud, Parker and Eli play, and spends time trying to keep up with his loyal black Labrador, Mojo. To this day, Hall says his greatest accomplishment was getting wife, Pat, to say “I do” in 1982.
The prayer breakfast is open to all men and is being hosted by Woodlawn United Methodist Church pastor, Tom Gruver.
