"Just wanted to write and thank ACSMA for choosing me as the recipient of the Skeeter Francis Award at last week's ACC Tournament. Skeeter was a true legend in college sports and to be given an award in his name is a highlight of my professional career. Please pass on to the Francis family how honored I am. Again, I really appreciate ACSMA for thinking of me."
Jimmy Rayburn, the Chief Operating Officer of Raycom Sports, showed appreciation in a thank you letter to the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association for his recognition as the winner of this year’s Marvin ‘Skeeter’ Francis Award. The Francis Award recognizes individuals for distinguished service to, or coverage of, the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Letter from Rayburn:
ACSMA is officially recognized by the Atlantic Coast Conference as the representative body of media members who cover the ACC on a regular basis. It is an organization of journalists dedicated to fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between the news media and the institutions and administration of the ACC. ACSMA had 113 members for the 2013-14 school year. NSMA executive director Dave Goren oversees ACSMA.
