The Kansas State High School Activities Association recognizes individuals who have actively officiated for twenty, thirty, and forty years. Believe it or not, this school year was my 20th. I’ve met tons great kids and worked with a lot of great officials. It isn’t a glamorous job but it is fun and rewarding, especially when you see a former player and not only do they remember you but they thank you. It was fun to receive the award at the 2A State Tournament prior boys championship game because I’ve had the honor of officiating the kids from Central Plains and St. John for many years. I also was able to cheer and I cheered for BOTH teams!
