WVLT Sports had a chance to catch up with an old friend this past Saturday, Farragut grad and Channel-8 Sports director Stan Cotten was awarded the Lindsey Nelson Broadcasting Award at this years Orange and White game.
Stan's been broadcasting games at Wake Forest for years, but has not forgotten his east Tennessee roots, " I loved working at Channel-8, we had a great crew, it was a lot of fun. I thing we were the first newscast in town to go from a half hour to an hour and still keep up with a lot of those people. To be here at home in Knoxville to get this award with his name on it is particularly pleasing and it's been a lot of fun this weekend."
Along with Stan, former Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson was awarded the General Neyland Award.
