Matthew Loughlin '79
New Jersey Devils
Matt Loughlin is an American sportscaster who is the radio play-by-play voice of the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League on WFAN, where he is partnered with former goaltender and former Devils TV color commentator Chico Resch. Loughlin attended St. Mary's High School. A 1979 graduate of Seton Hall University, Loughlin worked as a sideline reporter and pre- and post-game show host for Devils' telecasts on Fox Sports Net New York from 1997 to 2006. He also hosted intermission reports, where he was often paired with Stan Fischler for a question-and-answer feature called "Matt and the Maven". Loughlin substituted for play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick on occasion, often due to Emrick's conflicting national broadcast assignments. He served a similar role on New York Mets telecasts from 1996 to 2005. He is a resident of Westfield, New Jersey.
Sampson Davis was raised as the fifth of six children in Newark, New Jersey. Despite growing up in cramped living quarters, surrounded by fragmented families, crime and drugs, he was a good student, able to strike the fragile balance between being smart yet socially acceptable on the streets.
While attending Newark's University High School, he met fellow students Rameck Hunt and George Jenkins. Together, they made a promise to become doctors, which they all later fulfilled after attending Seton Hall University.
Davis graduated with honors from Seton Hall, earned his medical degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completed his residency in emergency medicine at the same hospital where he was born, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.
Today he is a board-certified emergency medicine physician who has appeared on numerous talk and radio shows as well as in many print publications. He has co-authored three New York Times best-selling books: The Pact, We Beat the Street and The Bond.
Dr. Davis was honored in 2000 with a Lifetime Achievement Award from Essence and named in the magazine's list of "40 Most inspirational African- Americans" in the country. In 2009, he was honored at the BET Awards. Oprah Winfrey called him one of the "premiere role models of the world," and he is the youngest physician to receive the National Medical Association’s highest honor, The Scroll of Merit.
