HAZARD, Ky (WYMT) – Continuing our coverage of the three students who received the $1,000 Ralph Gabbard Memorial Broadcasting Scholarship, Hazard High School student Cameron Caudill has a passion for athletics.
He said he was happy when he heard the news.
“I was really excited about it because I worked so hard to fill out the application,” Cuddle said. “I wish I had it all the time after I sent it in. I was really excited to hear that I understood.”
Caudill said he plans to use the scholarship to one day get into sports broadcasting.
“I have played sports all my life and always wanted to be involved in sports all my life,” he said. “I thought this would be a great and easy way to do it.”
Big said it was inspired by the podcast hosted by Matt Jones and Joe Rogan.
“The first time I listened to it, I just became interested in listening to it over and over again. I realized I could do it as a career,” Cuddle said. It will get me involved in sports.”
Caudill said he wants to one day host his own sports show or podcast.
“I was talking about sports in Kentucky, specifically Eastern Kentucky,” he said. “Where am I from and try to get more appreciation for the kids here.”
He adds that there is a need for athletic representation in the region.
“Where are we from, not everyone gets the recognition, they should get the sport,” Caudel said. “I think the more people that can help, the more people here will help get where they want to go.”
Caudill said he plans to attend Morehead State University.
He adds that the school offers exactly what he is looking for to further his sports broadcasting plans.
