Talking football with Jimmy Doogan and Caleb Burggraaf

Fall is in the air, especially in the evenings, and that means football is around the corner. We have been continuing our previews of the local teams here at Heart of the Rockies Radio, but what about the thoughts from the voices themselves?

While the first day of practices were going on, Caleb Burggraaf and Jimmy Doogan sat down and talked about what the Buena Vista Demons and Salida Spartans saw on the field last year, and what they might see on the field this season as a result.

Also, we took a look at where we might position a few players who will be factors for both teams, and what their supporting cast will look like.

The first broadcasts for the high school season start on August 30th when Salida travels to Summit for a zero week game. Buena Vista opens with Platte Canyon the next week.

Caleb Burggraaf

A Colorado native, Burggraaf has had a passion for sports broadcasting since he was a freshman in high school in Pagosa Springs.

This led him to Mesa State College (now Colorado Mesa University) in Grand Junction, where he became the Sports Director at KMSA 91.3 in just his sophomore year. By the time he graduated, Caleb built a broadcasting program that covered nearly 400 games in the two and a half years.

2018 was his first year as a member of Heart of the Rockies Radio, and Caleb helped bring over 200 games and local games to the airwaves, and he is looking forward to continuing that path this season as the sports program continues to grow!
