Josh McWilliams is often the voice at the other end of The Daily Record sports phone, with whom many coaches speak to when calling in scores. He records game information, writes them up as brief summaries and tends to add his own flavor. McWilliams started at The DR in August, 2002 with a tryout story about players coming out of the mist, then went to being the staff whipping boy who wore a cheerleader outfit and Joe Gantz’s helmet for some photo opp time.
In his full-time time job, McWilliams works as a store manager for the Goodwill store in Millersburg. “What can I say, we have great deals,” he said. “Anyway, I love sports, always have, graduated from Central Christian, live in Shreve, hold no allegiance to any school and am very opinionated. The sports I love are football, basketball, baseball and I have to admit a small part of my heart likes soccer, thanks to good man Bryan Schaaf, who showed me the ropes.” Josh can reached at email@example.com or follow me on twitter, josh_mc1982.
