JP Dellacamera named Colin Jose winner

Longtime broadcaster JP Dellacamera has been named the winner of the 2018 Colin Jose Media award. The award is designed to honor members of the media who specialize in communications with respect to soccer in the United States and is awarded to those whose contributions in the field are deemed to be of exceptional and sustained quality. The award is named for Colin Jose who was the official historian of the National Soccer Hall of Fame between 1997 and 2007.

“I am so honored and humbled to receive the Colin Jose Media Award, joining such a distinguished list of past winners,” Dellacamera said. “It is great to see the National Soccer Hall of Fame recognize those outside of the playing and coaching fields, as they pay tribute to others who have made significant contributions to the game.”

Dellacamera has been a staple on the broadcast scene of American soccer for decades. He has called the last two World Cup triumphs for the United States. His trade mark call of “goal!” was the only word spoken for more than two minutes after Brandi Chastain hit her infamous penalty kick to defeat China in 1999. More recently he was at the mic for Carli Lloyd’s 16-minute hat trick against Japan in the 2015 final.

On the men’s side Dellacamera called Paul Caligirui’s goal that put the U.S. into the 1990 World Cup and kickstarted the soccer boom still prevalent today. He will be honored at the Hall of Fame induction ceremony October 20 in Frisco, Texas.
