Battlefields to Ballfields

The SGVFOA is looking for military veterans to become football officials. Through Battlefields to Ballfields, a program started by Mike Pereira, veterans are provided “an opportunity to integrate back into their communities through officiating and scholarships.” The foundation will pay for uniforms, dues, and insurance, and will provide a mentor to help veterans move up the officiating ladder.

Bear Memorial Patches

The “Bear” memorial patches have arrived. If you would like to pick them up for yourself and your crewmates for this week, please contact Darren Winkley, who will set them out on his porch for you. Each official will receive two patches.  The patch can be sewn, taped, or glued to the hat and should be centered on the back about 1/2″ from the bottom.
