Michigan wide receiver AJ Henning caught the ball nine times and carried it nine times during the Wolverines' incredible run to the College Football Playoff. The high point came on a 14-yard end around into the end zone against hated Ohio State. He also scampered in from 79 yards on a trick kickoff return against Maryland. Though not the focal point of the the offense, it won't be a shock if he gets loose for a big play or two against Georgia. With the semifinal games set to be broadcast by ESPN, Gus Johnson was not considered for the role of play-by-play announcer. And really, it'd be weird if he was — a major sports media story for those who care to dissect.
So Henning's impression of the Fox Sports' voice will have to do. Here he is breaking it out during a beach day for Michigan. Feel free to set your expectations high because this is a solid nine out of 10.
Brilliant work. If I were a high-performance athlete I'd definitely work on my impressions of the sport's top play-by-play announcers to break out internally whenever the ball was in my hands. Why let those watching from home have all the fun?
