George Lucas

Media Relations/Broadcaster

George was born in Washington, DC and raised in Windber, PA.  A devoted Rambler, George was a catcher for 3 years at Windber Area High School and also played one “not so glorious” semester of “fall ball” as a 2nd-baseman for the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

George’s broadcast career has been much more memorable!  He is the former voice of the Johnstown Chiefs and Nashville Knights (both of the ECHL) and also serves as the play-by-play voice for dozens of high school football and basketball games each year for WAHS.

George will handle media relations duties beginning this year and will call his 3rd season of Mill Rats’ baseball in the summer of 2023.  He can also be heard daily on “Froggy 95.5” radio in Johnstown, where he serves as Program Director and Afternoon Personality.

Phoebe Bowers
