Smokin' Dave Cokin continues to make history as one of the nation's top sports gaming analysts of all time. Dave's reputation as the ultimate college sports insider expands by the year. His coveted Sunday night early college football plays literally move the number as soon as they're released and there are few analysts who can equal his big play record over the years.
"The Cat in the Hat" also has the loftiest media credentials in the handicapping industry. Dave was voted as the 2004 and 2006 Nevada Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association. He's been a radio/TV fixture in Las Vegas as well as nationally since the mid 1980's. Dave has co-hosted national network sports shows with such luminaries as Pete Rose, Bill Raftery, Matt Guokas, Dick Versace and Johnny Orr, just to name a few.
Dave is presently heard weekdays from 12-3 PM on ESPN920 in Las Vegas, and recently enjoyed an exclusive interview with newly elected President Barack Obama. Cokin is a featured columnist in several national publications and is regularly in demand as a gaming insider on numerous sports talk shows throughout the land. No wonder Dave Cokin was tagged by noted author Martin Mendelsohn as the "Ted Williams of the sports service industry." Perhaps the only difference is that Dave occasionally tips his cap.
