Biography: Bob has been the public address announcer at Wheaton North High School basketball games for the past quarter century and is a huge part of the game-day experience.  He fills in gaps with news about upcoming games, schedules, and activities.  Bob really gets the crowd’s attention with the introduction of the “Falcon Feeder” dinner menu.  During the game, when a three-point basket occurs, he rolls his tongue and blurts out, “Thu-rreee”.  He is one of a kind.
