Even if Dave Pasch can't use his voice to broadcast sports, he can still speak up for those suffering during the pandemic. The four-time Arizona Sportscaster of the Year, who is best known for his national play-by-play work with ESPN, struck a chord recently with a social media post offering to help a Phoenix family who has lost income due to the virus and cannot pay a bill.
In a Twitter post, Pasch recalled a well-known Bible verse (Acts 20:35) about helping the weak, and Jesus saying it is more blessed to give than to receive. He explained, "I just felt this is an opportunity for me as a Christian to live out my faith in a way that's real, and kind of where the rubber meets the road. Here's an opportunity to step up when you've got a lot of people who are hurting and suffering and unsure of the future. I thought it was a good opportunity to use the platform I've been given to be a good witness and certainly not take the glory for myself, but help another person."
