Hi, my name is Patrick and I have been a high school Football Official in Colorado for the past 10 years. During that time I have studied, researched and tried to find out as much as possible about being a ref so I can be the BEST I possibly can. Along the way there have been many people and organizations who have helped me and with this blog, I’d like to “pay it forward” so you can benefit from my experiences. Feel free to leave a comment or question any time and I’ll personally get back to you. Let me know if there’s something you’d like me to address on this site so others can learn. School is starting soon in most places so – go out there and have fun and enjoy the 2009 Football Season!!
