Sulphur pastor Bill Leveridge will begin his 28th season as voice of the Bulldogs when he straps on the headphones on Sept. 4 as the Dogs host Madill in the season opener.
Voice Of The Dogs To Begin His 28th Season
For many years, there have been several constants associated with Sulphur football.
Jim Dixon, of course. The red helmets with the one-of-a-kind Bulldog logo. And the tradition of no opponent being excited about stepping onto Agee Field, knowing it would be a true dogfight.
When you have a program that has experienced sustained success for so many years, things reign true and when it works, you don’t change.
And many of these things, Sulphur fans couldn’t imagine being different.
One of those is Bill Leveridge, the longtime voice of the Bulldogs.
Leveridge has been the Bulldogs’ play-by-play man for 27 years now and his name, voice and personality go hand-in-hand with Sulphur football.
Recently, I sat down with Leveridge to talk about many things, including his favorite memories, why he is the man in the booth, his relationship with Coach Dixon and much more.
Whitt Carter: You’ve been at this for a long time. To do this for that long, I can imagine you have your favorite parts of the job. What is the most rewarding to you and why?
Bill Leveridge: “I just love talking about the players and then talking to the players and coaches about the games. Believe it or not, I enjoy most when I am able to talk to them after a tough loss. Anyone can be an encourager when things are going our way. And it got really tough for those years when we just weren’t as competitive.
