Games like the one we were so fortunate to work on Oct. 2 are exactly the blueprint for why we all feel high school athletics are so very important. The teams were very competitive, and the spirit level and play level was very high. More importantly, the sportsmanship level was even higher. Both schools/communities need to be extremely proud of their teams. The young men involved should be commended on how the contest was played. In these tough times, this is crystal clear reminder of why officials are willing to put time and effort in. positive experience. Please accept my crew’s’ congratulations on your efforts. Thanks and please stay safe.

I have officiated many times at Necedah and each and every time for the last 2-3 years of going there, the level of attention to detail from the WON 80 Club at Necedah gets better and better. Part of this movement is to show appreciation for sports officials by providing them snack bags with various treats for officials to eat in the locker room or in the car ride home. These great efforts start with leadership and teacher, Mark Horbinski, deserves a tremendous amount of credit for taking leadership of the young people at Necedah High School who help Mark make up the treat bags needed for each and every home game. Bags also go to the visiting team from each contest and the event staff who make things possible, so it is a ton of work. The best part of the bags is the personal touch of a hand written note from a student at the high school and this is just a tremendous undertaking and it does not go unnoticed. Thank you Mark Horbinski and the WON 80 Organization at Necedah for the great work you do around sportsmanship. Keep up the excellence!
