Throughout his own Hall of Fame career in Beaver County, Bob Barrickman has seen it all–the thrills of victory, the agonizing defeats, the close ones, the blowouts–and the occasional times where sports has to take a pause for outside factors getting involved.
But even now, in his fifth decade of broadcasting, he admits this is something he’s never seen before.
Beaver County Radio’s sports director said as such as he followed fellow Hall of Famer Chris Shovlin to join Greg Benedetti and Matt Drzik on the March 14 edition of the Saturday Sports Slam. Barrickman spoke about his thoughts on the COVID-19’s effect on the sports world, as all sports have been cancelled or postponed indefinitely. He also talked about the effect it would have on the would-be current PIAA basketball playoffs, and how it may (and perhaps should) effect the spring/summer sports on both the scholastic and professional levels.
