With the departure of Coach Lynsey Grace, the Lincoln University men’s basketball program welcomes in Ervin Warren as their new announcer for their home games.
“When my wife Elaine told me Brian Howard wanted me to be the new announcer for men’s basketball I was excited. It brought back so many memories,” said Warren.
Brian Howard, the Sports Information and Media Specialist who hired Warren, is pleased with his new announcer. “I never had to go with the flow when it came to hiring someone so quickly for a position, but Mr. Warren has done a fantastic job. He has stepped up to the plate and we thank him for that.” said Howard.
Warren is a 45 year-old contractor from Kenneth Square, Penn. He attended college at Lincoln where he began his collegiate career playing basketball. He later transferred to Widener University. “Lincoln always had this welcoming atmosphere about their campus and I’m glad to be back where it all started for me,” said Warren.
Warren also has some new objectives for the program as well. He would like to include inspirational facts pertaining to black history to honor those that have paved the way for us. It is also his way to give the Lincoln community knowledge while enjoying the game.
Grace’s departure is due to her getting a new position as the Assistant Athletic Director for the Community College of Philadelphia.
Howard has worked with Grace over the last 8 months and will miss her. “Coach Grace was very valuable to Lincoln University’s Department of Athletics. Her presence will truly be missed. We wish her the best on her future endeavors.” said Howard.
