Raiders News · SJ Alumni Spotlight – PJ Elliott


PJ Elliott graduated from Stonewall Jackson in 2000. While here, he played both basketball and football. At age 18, PJ became interested in radio broadcasting and he ended up attending the Connecticut School of Broadcasting.

Now, PJ is working as an anchor and producer for 106.7 The Fan in DC. He produces their Redskins pre-game and post-game shows, and he hosts the “Nats Quick Pitch” which airs prior to their Washington Nationals broadcasts. As an anchor, he gives sports updates on the air every 30 minutes.

As someone who was heavily involved in high school sports and is now working in a sports-centered career, we asked PJ what advice he would give to today’s high school athlete…
“My advice is to make sure your grades are top priority. If you want to play at the next level, colleges are looking at your grades starting as a freshman. It doesn’t matter how good you are as an athlete, grades are the first thing they look at and will ask your coach or AD to check.  It may not seem like there’s enough time in the day, but if your committed to pursuing your dreams to play in college, it won’t seem like your sacrificing that much. You’ll make time for school work as well as the offseason workout plan. Also, your social media presence is crucial. What you post will be seen by everyone, no matter if your account is private or not. And if playing in college isn’t your thing, there are plenty of options to stay in sports. I just finished my 8th year coaching high school basketball. I spent 3 years at Warren County High School, 2 years at Stafford High School, and the last 3 have been at Brooke Point High School.”

We are always Raider proud to see an alumni continue to stay involved in athletics in one way or another. As a broadcaster and a coach, PJ is doing just that!
