Welcome to Elijah Wilson's webiste! Elijah is currently a student at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. He is a Sports Broadcasting major in the Communications department and also runs cross country and track for the University.
Elijah Wilson has broadcast numerous high school football games and plans to commentate for many upcoming Austin Peay events, as they let their students call each game. Elijah plans to intern for the Tennessee Smokies, the Double-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, this summer under the play-by-play commentator.
Elijah Wilson is working towards a Communications degree with a focus in Sports Broadcasting. He would like to focus his time in Sports Broadcasting being an on-air talent and has been able to do so while at Austin Peay State University, as they let their students produce and broadcast all the chosen sporting events. Elijah would like to be a play-by-play announcer for sports, rather than an in-studio analyst.
Elijah also volunteers with Young Life in Clarksville, where he goes to school, which is a global ministry that enables Young Life to go into high schools, hang out with kids, share their lives with them in hopes that they will get to share the story of Jesus with them. Elijah is currently a Young Life leader at Clarksville Academy in Clarksville, TN.
Elijah Wilson has had the opportunity to call numerous high school football games including Clarksville High vs. Rossview, Clarksville High vs. Henry County, and Rossview vs. West Creek. All the high school games were broadcast on APSU TV, which is a local channel in Clarksville. Elijah also had the opportunity to be the color analyst for the OVC Track and Field Championships that were held at Austin Peay in May of 2015. The OVC meet Elijah was able to call was broadcast on the OVC Digital Network.
Elijah is getting into upper-divison course at Austin Peay State University and is getting the opportunity in the near future to commentate football and basketball games while at the Austin Peay. Austin Peay allows its students to work all the sports production at the university so Elijah is also able to work in the production side of broadcasting, such as working the cameras, helping with the pregame and halftime show, and working in the studio to produce the game.
