High School Sports

2021 Senior Video Yearbook, By Ian Nicholas

(Ian Nicholas was well known to the New Canaan sports community the past four years because of his outstanding job calling games for NCTV 78, the high school television station. Nicholas reached a larger audience this past year with the streaming of games a more important commodity during the pandemic, when fans were not allowed at games.

Ian has also done an outstanding job producing videos and this spring serving as a podcast cohost for The Ruden Report. As part of his senior internship, Ian revived a past project, the Senior Video Yearbook, reaching out to some of the best FCIAC athletes from the Class of 2021 to have them share favorite memories. Along with a forthcoming project by another intern, we started with a list of about 50 athletes, trying to get at least two from each school and an equal number of males and females. Because of end-of-the-year conflicts we were unable to get to everyone, but the attempt was made.

Ian will be attending the Newhouse School at Syracuse this fall to continue his path to becoming a professional broadcaster.)
