IHSA Director Craig Anderson recently put out an article in which he stated that only twenty percent of officials continue with the profession after two years. We have started to see the decline of the number of new officials within Central Illinois for the last two years, which has resulted in the difficulty being able to fill the games we have scheduled. This has really been an issue during both basketball and baseball seasons.  Many officials state that the reason they do not continue to officiate is because of the treatment they receive from the fans in the stands. What us and other schools have begun to see is that without officials you cannot have games; in some instances, we have officials that don’t even show up, even though they have been contracted for a specific game.  With post-season basketball in full swing, we felt that this would be perfect time to dive into this topic further and see what is being done across the state to address this issue. Assistant Executive Director from the IHSA, Sam Knox, joins us to give the IHSA perspective on the growing crisis and what fans can do to ensure we have a long line of officials for many years to come.  We also preview the 2019 boys’ basketball regional championship between the hosts Bullets and fellow Sangamo Conference opponent, Riverton.

Due to the financial constraints in Illinois, the WHS athletic department has been presented with many of these growth opportunities over the past year; through them though, we have been able to grow, become a stronger athletic department, and develop new relationships. One of those new relationships that has been developed is with VFW Post 10302. Through their community outreach program, we were fortunate enough to receive a donation to purchase an alternate set of football uniforms for our varsity football team. Post Commander Bobby Edwards sits down with us to discuss not only this, but how the VFW supports students, student-athletes, and the community as a whole through a variety of programs both locally and nationally. This episode and Mr. Edwards experiences in life truly show the importance of being part of something bigger than yourself; which is a value that we are instilling in our student-athletes.
