By Tessa DiTirro EASTLAKE, Ohio (WEWS) — A Westlake senior knows exactly what he wants to do after high school. His goal is to be a sports broadcaster, specifically a color commentator. The way he's honed his craft is quite surprising. It's not by seeing but by listening. Allan Wylie feels right at home wearing a microphone in a broadcast booth inside a sports stadium. 'That's already the fourth hit today for Lake County. It is and just another great ground ball there. You think of baseball now, it's all the home runs and exciting plays, but those kinds of hits are just as important,' Wylie said.
