3 Stars 2017 Week 31


  1. Danny Crawford NBA Basketball Referee
  2. Joy Johnston Hockey Referee
  3. Garrett Rank NHL Hockey Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 31 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. They were selected from posts that were added somewhere on the Officials101 website in the last 7 days. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.


3rd Star


Garrett Rank is an NHL Hockey Referee who also happens to be a pretty good golfer. At the 2017 RBC Canadian Open, the same place that Arnold Palmer won his first professional tournament, the 7th hole had a hockey theme. They called it The Rink, and Rank certainly looked at home. He shot par on the hole for both of his rounds. Here is a great shot of him rocking the referee jersey and draining the putt. Garrett Rank, Hockey Referee, is 3rd Star this week.



2nd Star


Joy Johnston was the Referee in the 2014 Olympic gold medal hockey game between Canada and the USA. Now she is the Referee In Chief of Ice Hockey UK. As the IHUK moves toward a very promising future, it has made great efforts to improve their officiating environment and culture. Having Johnston, one of the top referees in the world, leading the way, and introducing their new training platform can only be a sign of even better things to come. Joy Johnston, Hockey Referee, is 2nd Star.



1st Star


Danny Crawford is an NBA Basketball Referee. Imagine, if you will, please, what it would be like to officiate the NBA Finals. The intensity and the excitement. For almost any basketball referee on the planet, this would be the ultimate dream come true. A memory to cherish for all time. Can you also imagine achieving this dream 23 times? In a row? Basketball is losing a legend as Danny Crawford has announced his retirement, and officials everywhere are wishing him their congratulations and accolades. The announcement made by his home team, the NBRA, was the one chosen to share the announcement with the followers of Officials101. Danny Crawford, Basketball Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 31.

  3. Vikki Allan Football Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 24 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen.

3rd Star


Vikki Allan, Scotland’s Youth Ambassador for Refereeing, is about to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and create opportunities for women and girls to referee the game of football. A first year FIFA qualified Assistant Referee, Allan is a force in her home association, and I don’t think this is the last we are going to hear from her. Vikki Allan, Football Referee, is 3rd Star this week.



2nd Star


Gary Burgess is one of the world’s top International Netball Umpires. He made a trip back to his roots this week and caused a bit of a sensation for his visit. One of his stops was to officiate the Cup Final in one of his old stomping grounds, the Bedford Netball League. It is great to see when elite sports officials can give back to the people who helped make them who they are. Gary Burgess, Netball Umpire, is 2nd Star for being a classy guy.




1st Star


Lauren Holtkamp is an NBA Basketball Referee who also spent some time giving back to her roots. This was a great interview with Holtkamp by the Peach Belt Conference giving a glimpse at life in the big leagues. She shares the path she took to get there and some of the lessons she has learned along the way. Lauren Holtkamp, NBA Basketball Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 24.

3 Stars 2017 Wek 21


  1. Eleni Glouftsis AFL Umpire
  2. Bob Joyce Baseball Umpire
  3. Squash Referee Cake

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 21 in 2017. Maybe you agree and maybe you don’t, but read on below to find out why they were chosen. They were selected from posts that were added somewhere on the Officials101 website in the last 7 days. Stay tuned next week to find out who are the most notable referees, umpires and sports officials in the world today.


3rd Star


No surprise here for long time followers of 101. I never met a chocolate cake I didn’t like. I have no idea what kind of cake this is. Maybe it is a squash cake. Whatever it is, when there is cake and sports officials together in an Officials101 post, there is a really good chance it is going to the 3 Stars. This week is no exception. The Squash Referee post gets 3rd Star.



2nd Star


Bob Joyce is a Baseball Umpire from Connecticut. He is also the play-by-play for the UConn Women’s Basketball. This is a great article. Joyce talks about the similarities between his 2 jobs and has some funny stories to tell about his journey. Bob Joyce is 2nd Star for the week.



1st Star


Not much doubt on this one. The Officials101 search feeds have been packed with posts about Eleni Glouftsis for the past couple of weeks. Glouftsis had the distinction of becoming of becoming the first female Field Umpire in a professional Australian Football League game. To put that in perspective for those of you outside the AFL game, that is the equivalent of a woman officiating in the NHL, MLB or Premier League Football. This is a pretty big thing. For this historic achievement, Elenis Glouftsis, AFL Umpire is 1st Star for Week 21, 2017.
