For the third straight year, Syracuse University has been awarded two national accolades at the 31st Annual Telly Awards. The spots were edited and produced by director of media properties, production & licensing Roger Springfield.
With more than 11,000 entries from all 50 states and around the world, Springfield's work was recognized for outstanding media production. In the Sports Internet/Online Video category, Springfield received a Bronze Telly Award for the Coach MacPherson Hall of Fame Tribute video, which included filming by SU athletics producer/videographer Jim Hamilton.
Springfield received a second Bronze Telly Award in the Sports Film and Video Non-Broadcast category for the Syracuse Football Stadium Open, which was also nominated for a New York Emmy Award.
