More from The Q&A: Toby Rowland
I’m sure there’s been someone interviewed for The Q&A who’s been more fun than Toby Rowland, but I really can’t think who that would be.
He was a blast, and while he is well-known as a sportscaster at KWTV-9, a sports talk show host on KREF-AM 1400 and the new sideline reporter for Oklahoma football radio broadcasts, there is something about Rowland’s past that not many people know.
Jenni Carlson: Little known fact about you …
Toby Rowland: You did research?
JC: Well, I talked to Berry, so blame him if you want, but your picture is on the most famous wall in all of high school sports.
TR: My high school gymnasium is the largest high school gymnasium in the world. New Castle High School … in Indiana seats over 10,000 people. It’s one of the most historic gyms in Indiana. So, my picture is on the wall of fame as a tennis player. I am up there in short tennis shorts and way too much hair because my tennis team won regionals one year. A lot of people don’t know I have an Andre Agassi side to me.
JC: Could some sort of tennis-related job be far off?
TR: You think John Roddick might hire me at some point? That would be exciting. See, now, OU fans are like, “Great, we’ve hired a fourth-string SNU point guard who played tennis in high school. What are we doing?” (Laughs.)
JC: Seriously, though, what’s bigger — OU football or Indiana basketball?
