Gerry Sandusky ’83 is the voice of the Baltimore Ravens.
During his 18 seasons as the radio voice of the Baltimore Ravens, Gerry Sandusky ’83 has uttered millions of words. But he’ll be most remembered for six. He first heard the phrase, “The hay is in the barn,” as a member of TU’s football team, when his coach, Phil Albert, would say it to declare practice over.
“Early in my broadcast career, there was a play that sealed a Ravens win, and I said, ‘The hay is in the barn.’ I didn’t even realize I had done it. The following week so many people said it back to me I recognized that it resonated. It’s been a thing ever since.”
Sandusky has the same passion for his job now as when he was a rookie. A game broadcast, he says, is a “story that you get to tell—but you have no idea where the story is going to go.”
