Sports media has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I am Kurtis Quillin and I am currently a Senior Sports Media student minoring in Sports Management at Oklahoma State University from Floresville, Texas.
I started Public Address Announcing in 2010 and did so for the next 3 years including High School Football Playoff Games, Varsity Softball (both regular season and playoffs), and High School Soccer Playoffs. In 2012 I was the Master of Ceremonies for my high school’s pep rallies and the host of my school’s sports news segment. I have been doing play-by-play through the OSU Sports Media Club at some Oklahoma State Baseball games beginning this year and worked for ESPN as a spotter during the OSU-Kansas basketball game on March 1, 2014.
In the fall of 2014, I began working as the Director of Video & Editing and lead video reporter for a group called Pioneer Media, which maintains all multimedia content for the Stillwater High School football team’s website, StillwaterFootball.com. I also have served as an ESPNU Campus Connection Contributor.
During the 2015-16 school year, I won 1st place in the BEA Festival of Media Arts for both TV Sports Talent and TV Sports Story/Feature for a story I reported about the new ball in college baseball. I also won 1st place in Radio Sports Play-by-play in the 2015-16 Oklahoma Broadcast Education Association festival.
