touchdown arkansas…..oh my!

the infamous call of one Razorback sports broadcasting legend will be heard no more….

yesterday evening at approximately 8:15 pm, legendary razorback sports broadcaster Paul Eells was traveling eastbound on I-40 near Russellville, AR when his car veered across the meadian and struck a west bound vehicle head on…

both Mr. Eells and Mrs. Burton, the driver of the west bound car, were killed instantly…

Mr. Eells was the Razorbacks play-by-play broadcaster for football for 28 years and was preparing to enter his 29th year in that position….

I have never known of anyone else calling the play-by-play in my lifetime…

things will be different now, and it will never be the same…

saturday afternoons listening to the Razorbacks play football praying like crazy to hear that infamous call of Mr. Eells "Touchdown Arkansas!!!…..oh my!!" that signaled the Razorbacks had crossed the goal line…

we will all miss you Paul and we hope and pray that your family receives the comforting they need in this time of monumental loss..

thank you again, Mr. Eells….you were a classic….
