No. 55: Sean McDonough

One of the most professional game-callers in sports broadcasting, ESPN elevated Sean McDonough to play-by-play duties for Monday Night Football when Mike Tirico left for NBC. ESPN won’t miss a beat with McDonough working alongside John Gruden. In fact, there’s a good argument to make that McDonough is a more natural football game-caller than Tirico given his long college football experience.
