ASST. TO THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR
Mr. Jim Hill, for the last 12 years was 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)
Mr. Hill is well known throughout the Commonwealth District for his professional delivery of the action and when fans gather inside Eagle Stadium in the fall 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 will always be fun and will never get old".
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 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.
When asked what he looks forward to the most in 2021-2022, the Voice does not hesitate, "I can't wait to 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, and just sit and enjoy a game as a fan."
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.
