ESCANABA - Denny Grall and Jim Pinar have positively influenced our communities through their efforts to report and broadcast the local sports story.
The wise scope of their job included: youth softball and baseball; Delta County High School athletic events; NMU athletics and the current professional sports story, especially the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions.
Denny and Jim handled this huge challenge professionally and accurately and even included a fine sense of humor for over 40 years.
Denny and Jim know the Escanaba Eskymo football coaching staffs appreciate their honest and loyal efforts to report the game story. We shared many joys and miles along the athletic road. We shared many late night game reports and Saturday morning conversations about the latest athletic event. We shared the difficult times athletic competition present to media professionals and the team coaches.
Thank you for your efforts to recognize the athletes and Eskymo teams you have covered during your wonderful careers.
