It was announced last week that legendary linebacker-broadcaster Sam Huff would have a reduced role this season, only calling 12 of a possible 20 Redskins games.
But the 77-year-old said he wants to keep going, telling Rick Snider of WashingtonExaminer.com he hopes to continue.
“When the day comes, you basically hope you know it,” Huff said. “Everything comes to an end, but I’m going to do this as long as I can.
“Sonny [Jurgensen], Sam and Larry [Michael] are still on the air. Is it going to last all season? I don’t know. I’m going to see how it works out.”
Huff said corporate officials were concerned what the full travel schedule would take out of him, so the decision was made to pull him off all but the Dallas and New York Giants road trips, while he’ll work all home games.
“They think because I have age on me now I can’t do what I do,” Huff said. “Life gets shorter, and you can’t do what you used to do as a player, as a coach. That’s what great about broadcasting — you don’t get hit and you’re part of the game.”
Huff said he’ll continue to broadcast as long as they let him. Along with Jurgensen, he provides a history and color that many broadcasts lack, and one that makes up for any lack of polish that might come with it.
