New and Returning San Diego County Football Officials.
Welcome to the 2019 Season!
It is a distinct honor and privilege to have been elected President of one of the most professional and progressive official’s associations in the country. The reputation of our association did not “just happen.” Our reputation has evolved as the result of the commitment and hard work of generations of officials. San Diego County is a “hotbed” of football playing talent, and it is only fitting that we match that talent with the quality of our football officials. My goal is to help us continue our pursuit of excellence.
We have a great football official’s association. This is largely due to the quality of our mentors, and the strength of our instructional program, but it is also due to the quality of character of the people who choose this avocation.
In 2018, our association had 43 officials work the CIF San Diego Section Finals and 13 officials worked CIF Regional and State Finals.
I am very excited to welcome this year’s class of first year officials. You are about to become a member of an exclusive fraternity. The friendships you will forge will last a lifetime, and will go far beyond the football field. Please know that your level of achievement will be directly correlated to your level of commitment; and therefore, you can become a skilled and competent high school official, or you can strive to work “Big Time” football in Division 1, or the NFL. It’s up to you!
I am excited to work with our Committee Chairs, Appointed Officers, and Board of Directors. These men represent many years of officiating experience and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve our association with them. Please feel free to approach any of us with suggestions, ideas or questions.
Let’s have a great 2019 football season!
President, San Diego County Football Association
