Tiger Athletics Mourns Loss of Public Address Announcer Ray Mullins
Aug. 10, 2014
Ray Mullins, the public address voice of many athletic teams in addition to the "Mighty Sound of the South", passed away on Saturday. Mullins was 66.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Ray's family," said athletic director Tom Bowen. "Ray was a remarkable man and a great announcer for many athletics teams and the band. Ray will be dearly missed by all."
Mullins was the public address voice for more than 20 years for the "Mighty Sound of the South" introducing the pregame and halftime shows at the Liberty Bowl. Mullins most recently was the public address voice at FedExPark for baseball games as well as Mike Rose Soccer Complex for men's and women's soccer. Over his tenure as a public address announcer for athletic teams, Mullins also did volleyball and women's basketball.
"Ray was a wonderful person, loved the Tigers and made the FedExPark experience one of a kind," said baseball coach Daron Schoenrock. "He will be great missed by everyone associated with Tiger baseball and we are keeping his family in our prayers."
