His career with South Carolina Gamecock Radio Network spanned 38 years, nine football coaches, seven basketball coaches and countless highs and lows.
It came to a close on Wednesday.
Carroll Senn has been the engineer for Gamecocks football and basketball broadcasts dating back to 1980. He announced his retirement on Twitter hours before South Carolina basketball hosted LSU in its regular season home finale.
“It’s bittersweet,” Senn said. “I’m going to miss it. I’m going to miss the people. But it’s time to sit down.”
A graduate of Lower Richland High School, Carroll is a Midlands product through and through. He is a South Carolina graduate and was working at South Carolina ETV when he got the call.
A friend joined what was the South Carolina Radio Network, which got the rights to Gamecocks games in 1980. The friend asked, and Senn did it part time until his retirement from ETV in 2002.
He’s seen 11-win football seasons, no-win football seasons, a Final Four and more in his long career.
“What I’m scared about doing, and I haven’t done it -- and I may never -- is I have often thought I’d go back and add up all the games I did and see what the win-loss percentage is,” Senn said. “I haven’t done that, and I probably don't want to. But there have been some high spots and probably some low spots.”
