2011 Hall of Fame Inductees
The opportunity to get to know and work with some really outstanding people. The early founders of this association laid a great foundation. Being a part of it is a real honor. I hope all new and young officials can appreciate the opportunity they have. Being a member has also afforded me the chance to make some great friends. Wearing the CFOA jacket at games beyond District commands respect. Coaches and ADs know they are getting some of the best officials in the State. It feels great to wear it.
