Clark Kellogg’s Proud Parent MomentBy: Chris Gabbard - March 20, 2012
Clark Kellogg’s son, Nick Kellogg , made it to the Sweet Sixteen over the weekend, with the underdog Ohio Bobcats.
Clark was calling the Lehigh / Xavier game when the 13 seed pulled another upset against South Florida to make it to the Sweet Sixteen. Ohio is the first 13 seed to make it this far in the tournament.
Kellogg was a little distracted during his play calling, watching the final seconds of the Bobcats game tick down, when Jim Nantz brought it to the attention of the TV audience.
Kellogg got a little emotional when Nantz asked if he go this nervous during his own career: “It’s all different when your kids are doing it. It’s a total different experience.”
“O wow, oh my goodness, oh my goodness. Way to go Bobcats!” Kellogg shouted after the final seconds wore out.
Clark will have to continue to watch his son while broadcasting. He will be in Atlanta calling the Baylor-Xavier and Kentucky-Indiana games while Nick is taking on North Carolina in St. Louis.
