Verona @ Madison Memorial
Sept. 27, 2019
As a crew we want to thank coaches Harris (Memorial) and Richardson (Verona) for their willingness to work together on a night that weather wise was less than ideal. It was one of the best football games I, as well as our crew, have had the privilege to be a part of. The level of respect shown between coaches and players of both teams as well as toward officials was what we hope for each week. Hard hits, helping each other up, patting teammates and opponents on the back and respectfully asking for clarification of situations or fouls was so refreshing. Such behaviors and actions begin with coaches, faculty and administration and is reinforced at home. The play was intense and the players represented their schools and communities splendidly. The Boards of Education in both Madison and Verona should be very proud of what is being taught and learned by these players and the teaching that is taking place. We would be honored to officiate for either team any time any place as they made our roles easier and much more pleasant.
