ASST. TO THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
For the last 12 years, Mr. Jim Hill, has been known as "The Voice of the Colonial Forge Eagles", announcing games for football, basketball baseball and lacrosse. Entering into 2021-22, the 22 year Air Force veteran will turn his microphones off to all but one program as he continues to be "The Voice of Colonial Forge Football". He will continue his daytime duties as the Assistant to the Athletic Director and will be responsible for administering and supporting all of our programs. He is also the Web Master for "America's Best Web Site" (forgeathletics.org)
If you've never heard Mr. Hill announce a Forge Football game, you are in for a treat! Mr Hill is well known throughout the Commonwealth District for his professional delivery of the action and when fans gather inside Eagle Stadium his trademark" ITS TIME FOR EAGLES FOOTBALL" lets all of Stafford County know that the Eagles are in town. "I've decided that less is more fun, said Hill. Since day one I've always felt that when it got to where I wasn't having fun, I'd walk away. Being part of Forge Friday's at the stadium for football games will always be fun and will never get old".
In 2014 he received the Bob Sheppard National High School Public Address Announcer of the year Award. The award is named after the long time stadium announcer for the New York Yankees, and is presented by the National Association of Sports Public Address Announcers.
Mr. Hill isn't retiring, and he's not done yet, but this move will give him some time to enjoy what he helped build here. In 2021-2022 you'll be able to catch "The Voice" on our social media platforms as he'll be your Eagle Insider covering as many contests as possible.
When asked what he looks forward to the most in 2021-2022, the Voice does not hesitate, "I can't wait to enjoy games as a fan. Walk into a game about two minutes before the start, not care who's in the starting line up, or what music I'll play during timeouts."
Mr. Hill and his wife Marsha (known to Forge fans as Mrs. Voice) live in North Stafford with their two grandchildren Ryan, and Madison and their beagle Maggie.
