Fans attending the first football game tonight will be surprised to hear an new voice sounding over the speakers.
English teacher Erick Rector is the new announcer for JV and varsity football and basketball games, taking the place of math teacher Mike Navrides.

“This year I was given the opportunity to announce and I decided to give it a shot,” said Rector.

Rector and Navrides, who left to teach at Los Gatos High, had worked together on the scoreboards at all the games last year. Rector was even able to announce at one of the games by himself last year.

Not only did Rector enjoy watching at the games, but he also has fun helping out Saratoga teams.

“I am super excited; I just hope I don’t make any mistakes,” said Rector.
