Texas Sports Broadcasting Testimonials
“I love the fact that you guys (TSB) don’t just show up for playoff games or once every year or so, y’all made a station for our school, for us!” – Anonymous TSB Listener
“We love being a part of the TSB Family in O’Donnell. What Gooney has done for small towns like ours is awesome. It tells our kids they are just as important as any others and have local support from so many people. Heck my family has been here forever, my dad coached here, and now I get to broadcast for Screamin’ Eagle Radio with my brother and best friends? It’s a dream come true!” – Jake Lowe
“Texas Sports Broadcasting is the only radio station in UIL history to broadcast EVERY state title football game! As well as the first station to ever broadcast a state track, cross country, and tennis tournament for that matter!” – University Interscholatic League
“Listening to my nephew play in his state football game while I had to work was something I will never be able to thank the TSB station enough for. I would’ve missed it if not for Texas Sports Broadcasting!” – Jeff Henderson TSB Listener
About Texas Sports Broadcasting
Clay “Gooney” Vickers created Texas Sports Broadcasting in 2018, one year after his launch of Coyote Country Radio, the flagship station for the Borden County Coyotes. As a Forsan HS graduate with no radio coverage at the time, Gooney noticed schools around the area had consistent coverage, while the Buffaloes only seemed to get noticed during playoffs. This would be a memory that would catch back up with Gooney when he began his career in radio in Big Spring in 2013, a year after volunteering to broadcast his first two Big Spring Lady Steer Softball games (he thought it was the last two chances he would ever have again). Gooney began with his “Gooney in the Morning” talk show on KBST in Big Spring, which led to a career of learning all there was to know in terrestrial radio. So much, in fact, that it opened a career opportunity at KSNY in Snyder as the Operations, Program, and Sports Director in 2015. After two years in Snyder, totally revamping the station into the most listened to Texas Country Music station in West Texas, earning multiple awards including Texas Country Music Small Market Station of the Year and landing Gooney the On-Air Personality of the Year award. With two out of three stations being used for Snyder and Ira ISD sports, Gooney put Borden County ISD on the air for the first time consistently in BC school history in 2016, covering their 2016 1A Sixman Football State Title.
With the goal of helping even more schools, and creating the same opportunity at a much more affordable rate, so businesses AND parents, grandparents, etc. could show their support for these student athletes, Gooney and his family moved to Gail, Tx and created Coyote Country Radio. The first broadcast was for the Borden County Coyote 2017 Baseball team during the State Baseball Tournament. Since then, Coyote Country Radio has had the support to honor students with scholarships on top of highlighting their high school careers. This is when Gooney knew he could help showcase even more high school athletes by expanding.
Texas Sports Broadcasting first went on the air in 2018 with two stations on board, Coyote Country Radio and Screamin’ Eagle Radio (covering O’Donnell ISD). To this day, these are the longest running stations in the TSB Family. In the fall of 2019, TSB added stations for Klondike, Grady, and Sands, who have all been able to learn and grow to create their own stations and keep the coverage alive for their students. Coming to the TSB Family in 2020 was Duck Nation Station for the 4A Taylor Ducks and Golden Tor Radio in 2021 for the coverage of 3A Lamesa student athletes.
Gooney has been married to the love of his life, Christine, since January of 2009 and have a son, Kellen “Lil Goon” and daughter, Kloey. They have lived in Gail since 2017 and have found a home in the small community while also getting to feel as if they are a small part of each community added to the TSB Family. Gooney is a theater major dropout turned stand-up comedian, which is what he always credits as leading to his career in radio; that and his stubbornness to never give up on what seems impossible. He is active in the Gail community outside of broadcasting as he has served as Vice President and President on the school’s booster club, as well as President of the BC youth sports organization and West Texas Youth Sixman Sports Organization Communications Director. Gooney has broadcasted not only sports for high school, but also for JV and Junior High, Youth sports championship games, Alumni Football, D1 and JUCO college sports, Rodeo, and even stock show events! His wife, Christine is a nurse and backbone of the Vickers family, without her years of hard work, dedication, and putting up with Gooney, none of this would be possible. Kellen dreams to attend Georgia University as the Bulldog’s kicker to study kinesiology and sports communication, then on to an NFL kicker for the Cincinnati Bengals before moving back home to Coach at Borden County and Broadcast with his dad while Kloey hopes to play college basketball at TTU or LCU and become a teacher and coach…where else but Borden County?
The TSB Family would like to thank all of our listeners, those that share our posts, information, and content, and have always believed in what we believe. Our sponsors, who we have been blessed with to help grow and keep seeking out more of those students and communities that need coverage, thank you all from our family to yours. And thank you to the student athletes we provide coverage for, the schools, communities, and parents for allowing us to have the honor and privilege of showcasing what you all stand for.
