Pat Foley '72
Patrick J. Foley ’72 is celebrating his 30th year as the Chicago Blackhawk’s announcer. After starting when he was only 26 years old as the youngest announcer in the National Hockey League, today he proudly delivers the action, intensity and excitement he sees on the ice. Pat says, “I feel very lucky to be able to live a dream I have had since Loyola. You never know what turns there are in the road but I like what I am doing.” Pat also has some advice for fellow Ramblers, “Sometimes dreams do come true, so set the bar high and go for it.” Pat earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in a Live Sports Program in 1991 and was inducted into the Chicago Sports Hall of Fame in 2001, joining local legends Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray. The Class of 1972, and all Ramblers, are always proud when hearing him call the game and wish Pat continued success. Go Blackhawks! Go Ramblers!
