Buckel calls state title games

MASSILLON — You will hear a familiar voice at the OHSAA state championship football games this weekend.

Dan Buckel, a 1969 graduate of Southern Local High School and former United girls basketball head coach, is the public address announcer at Massillon’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium.

He took over as the PA announcer for the Massillon Tigers’ home games this season. He has been the voice of Mount Union Stadium for more than 30 years.

Buckel will be working all six games this weekend, two each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is his first time handling the state finals.
