Sports talk radio host David Garrett visited with Madill High School students Thursday morning in the administration building conference room about his broadcasting career that spans nearly four decades. He currently hosts his own radio show on The Franchise 107.7 FM in Oklahoma City. Plus, he covers the Oklahoma City Thunder and files regular video reports for Tyler Media. He also serves as the radio play-by-play voice for the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos in Edmond. He begins his ninth season on the air with the program in 2015.
"The thing that impresses me most about David Garrett is his generous and humble spirit," Brandon Jacks said. "He kept encouraging the students to respect other people and always use proper manners."
"The world needs more people like David," Jacks said.
He spoke about his career in the broadcasting field and encouraged students to not give up even if they have made mistakes. 
He spoke of the opportunities that led him to become the radio play-by-play voice of the National Football League's Dallas Cowboys in the mid-90s. He broadcast Super Bowl XXX (30) from the radio booth following the 1995-96 season for the Cowboys. He worked radio for the New Orleans Saints before his stint with the Cowboys.
