“Mr. Muncrief is the voice of this entire school,” McCarter said. “He’s continued to serve this school and he does anything for the school.”
Muncrief still serves as the school’s mail carrier, and a contract on file in the superintendent’s office provides him one cup of coffee for every bag of mail delivered from the city’s post office. That continued dedication to the school is one of the reasons Muncrief is so well loved in Marlow and the reason his voice will be missed on Friday nights.
“I was just glad I was here to be part of it,” said Tommy Cosgrove, who is now the principal at Marlow High and has taught in the school system for 37 years. “He’s been a role model for all of us.”
Muncrief will have his Friday nights free starting in 2007, when Joe Ligon takes over the microphone at Outlaw Stadium, but even Muncrief admits he won’t be far from the action.
“I’ll probably sit out there in the stands when it’s pretty,” Muncrief said. “And I’ll listen to it on the radio when it’s cold. I just can’t stand that cold.”
