"O-Town at G-Town"

One student with a knack for sports broadcasting has been treating our community to a steady stream of athletic interviews, some semi-serious and some downright hilarious. Owen Gund '19 began recording interviews with Groton athletes last winter. "I figured this would be a nice way to contribute to the school spirit in our community," he said. "I do them because I enjoy connecting with an audience and because it is fun to improvise in the interviews on camera." His improvisation is half the fun.

Owen is direct when urging people to come out and cheer on the Zebras. His signature line—a bit tongue-in-cheek, like many of his interviews: "Turn up or transfer." Watch videos
