Burlington at Racine Case
Aug. 21, 2015


During the game, the sportsmanship was fantastic. Both teams helped each other the ground, and not one word was said across the lines, there was not one complaint from the coaching staffs of either team. It was a pleasure to work for these teams and we look forward to working these teams again.

Boyceville at Flambeau
Aug. 21, 2015


We were very impressed with the way Flambeau and Boyceville entered into the first contest of the year. All the student-athletes played and hit hard, helped each other up, kept their composure throughout the contest, and really responded well with the official's directions in both penalty and non-penalty situations. The coaching staffs of both schools (Flambeau head coach Todd Roehl and Boyceville hea coach Brian Roemhild) held the highest standard possible of sportsmanship and this was reflected in the way their student-athletes played the game. If a coach had a question, needed clarification or had a concern, they always handled themselves with grace and professionalism. This was one of the best opening night games in regard to teams ready to play that we have seen in a while. Great sportsmanship and hard hitting football was prime in Tony, WI in week 1. A game like this is what makes football officiating a fun avocation.

Living Word Lutheran at Three Lakes
Aug. 22, 2015

We were very impressed with sportsmanship displayed by both teams during the contest. They were well-coached and managed. The coaches role modeled the positive behavior that allowed both teams to learn and grow. They provided positive words of encouragement and coached the game.  If they had questions of the officials they respectfully asked the wing officials and said thank you afterwards.  The coaches managed their sidelines by respecting the team box and making sure they were behind the restricted area when play started.  The players followed the positive behaviors of their coaches.  With language getting worse on the field and penalties being assessed for it, the crew did not hear one foul word by either team. Players played hard and hit hard. They assisted their own and the opponents up after being tackled. This type of sportsmanship allows officials to focus on the game and not the behaviors that could lead to negative situations. Along with the coaches and players, the officiating crew applauds Three Lakes High School.  The game manager treated the crew in an outstanding manner.  The chain gang did an outstanding job and is one of the best this crew has ever experienced.  We look forward to officiating at Three Lakes in the future. The crew is grateful for how organized and well coached each team was.  It is only through dedication and positive expectations that the proper sportsmanship illustrated is displayed on a consistent basis by all involved in the game.

Seymour at West De Pere
Aug. 21, 2015

It was "smash mouth" football at its  best.  Both teams pounding the ball with strong running games.  And yet for being "smash mouth," it was a game in which the players and coaches never let things get out of hand.  From the time the ball was snapped on each play until the whistle sounded, players on both sides gave the game their all.  And after the whistled sounded, they helped each other up - friend and foe alike.  The word "gentleman" describes every player who stepped on that field. Each players gave it "his all" on every play and then handed out "good sportsmanship." when the play ended.
