passing of north country sports legend: con elliott


North Country sports legend and broadcaster Con Elliott passed away at 5:20 p.m. on Thursday.  Elliott joined WPDM radio in Potsdam in 1955, the year the station was founded.  He broadcasted thousands of games over a span of more than 40 years and knew most athletes by name.  Section X Coordinator Carl Normandin issued the following statement Thursday:

"It is with  heartfelt regrets that I write to inform you of the death of Legendary Potsdam radio broadcaster, James “Con” Elliott.  Con passed away quietly with his family at his side at about 5:20pm this evening . Although it would be hard to believe that you personally may never have had the privilege of meeting Con, those of you that  did know him, knew that he was a person of great character, intellect and humor.  This was certainly evident by the numerous conversations he has had with his friends,  family, and the athletic community in Section 10. Over the decades, “Con” Elliott developed a loyal fan base with his unique and professional broadcasts of High School and Collegiate sporting events. He was a true ambassador for the  promotion of athletics all over the North Country and beyond . Please take a moment to pass along your deepest condolences to  “Cons”  family and the Potsdam school community for their loss. I believe it would be most appropriate to share a moment of silence in memory of Mr. James “Con” Elliott, if you have an athletic event Friday or Saturday.
