89 years old. Easily in the 'top ten' broadcasters of all-time.

Was the sound of college football in my youth. I could listen to him read the phone book and enjoy it.

He's best known for college football, but he was someone who could literally call anything, which cannot be said for most announcers.

The first Monday Night Football play by play
Called baseball at ABC
Was ABCs NBA guy in the early 70s
Did college basketball. I watched a YouTube clip of him calling a buzzer beater where Illinois beat Indiana in 1989. Unfortunately, Dukie V screamed and yelled over him

I didn't really understand who he was until the early 90's. Then I finally got Chris Berman's ESPN Prime Time joke about "oh lemme' tell ya' 'bout Keith Jackson" whenever they referenced the Eagles/Dolphins TE of the same name.
