3 Stars 2017 Week 36


  1. Bibiana Steinhaus Football Referee
  2. Jennifer Huggins Boxing Referee
  3. Nigel Owens Rugby Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 36 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


Nigel Owens is probably one of the most famous referees in the world today. For many years the rugby world has chosen Owens to take charge of its most important matches. His exchanges with players have been legendary. The sport of rugby has a reputation for sportsmanship and honour, at least at the elite levels, and when you see a match with Nigel Owens in the middle, you understand the meaning of the word respect in sport. Most of his focus these days has been on the speaker circuit where he is in huge demand. He speaks to audiences that include everyone from the ‘rich and famous’ to the ‘you and me’. I have never seen him myself, but from what I see in my searches, he is absolutely hilarious. Like this television advert. I thought it was funny. That wins. Nigel Owens, Rugby Referee, is 3rd Star.



2nd Star


Jennifer Huggins is a Boxing Referee, and well known to the Officials101 Twitter audience. Huggins is Canada’s top Boxing Referee, at the moment, and she is a whole lot more. A very successful entrepreneur, with a gym in Toronto, her charity work is also amazing and widespread. The Fight To End Cancer fundraiser that she created and operates has raised millions, but she also does a thousand little things behind the scenes that people don’t see. It is quite inspiring. It is an honour that Huggins takes a moment from her busy schedule and shares her insights with the 101 Twitter feed. This week, she sent us 3 great posts. You can decide which one you like most. I put them all together and Jennifer Huggins, Boxing Referee, is 2nd Star for the week.





1st Star


Bibiana Steinhaus is a #Football #Referee in Germany. She might be the most recognizable of the worlds’ female soccer referees. Steinhaus has been in the middle for a number of high profile international matches in women’s football she is cuurently grabbing more attention for her work in men’s football in Germany. This week, Steinhaus will become the first female referee to ever appear in a Bundesliga match and that is pretty big news. Bibiana Steinhaus, Football Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 35.

3rd Star


Robert Byrd is a Boxing Referee who has just been assigned the ring for the August 26th fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather.

Howard Webb is probably one of the most recognizable Football Referees of all time. The former World Cup Referee gives a great podcast interview here talking about a wide variety of interesting topics including his life away from the game and his new job with the MLS. As the man in charge of implementing the VAR Technology for the league, Webb has great insight into the future of soccer in North America and the world.

3 Stars 2017 Week 18

 


  1. Nigel Owens Rugby Referee
  2. Jennifer Huggins Boxing Referee
  3. Ball and Strike Counter for Umpires

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 18 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


I like to include a non-human element to the 3 Stars whenever I get the opportunity. The idea is to highlight an interesting topic that is relevant to Referees and Umpires. I admit that I often fudge the guidelines a little bit when there are cake or cookies involved because I want some, but this week, the post is of the non-edible variety. These college students are trying build a Ball and Strike Counter for Baseball and Softball Umpires. Many baseball fans are worried that Umpires will be replaced once these machines are perfected, which is just not so. The human umpires will still be there calling tips, fouls and plays at the plate. One day, ‘Robot Umpires’, as they are often called, will become just another Tech Tool for Sports Officials. Watch for this technology to improve quickly in the future. For now, The Ball and Strike Counter gets 3rd Star and starts the hashtag #bscounter.




2nd Star


Jennifer Huggins, Boxing Referee, makes another appearance in the 3 Stars by becoming the Top Boxing Official in Canada. Although Huggins is a real force outside the ring with her entrepreneurial spirit and charity work, it was nice to see here work inside the ring being recognized. This week. Jennifer Huggins is 2nd Star.




1st Star


Nigel Owens, Rugby Referee, is in a class of his own. In the World of Sports Officiating, Owens is probably the most highly respected referee on the planet, in any sport. His control of games is legendary and, for me, it comes as no surprise that he is appointed the Champion’s Cup Final. Nigel Owens is posted on Officials101 more than any other official and I doubt this will be his last appearance in the 3 Stars for 2017. Keep an eye open for that down the road. Today, Nigel Owens gets 1st Star.

2nd Star


Perry Barber is one of the top female baseball umpires in the world. This week Barber was out there making history again and forging another path for female umpires of the future. For leading the way and fighting the fight for over 30 years, Perry Barber is 2nd Star for the week.



1st Star


John Higgins is one of the top basketball referees in the world. When Higgins is calling NCAA games the Officials101 search feeds come alive in ways reserved for the biggest games. March Madness is the biggest and most important time of the season for college basketball in the United States. Careers are made and broken during this tournament and Higgins is often chosen to cover the critical games and it is great to see articles like this one that recognize his skill. John Higgins gets 1st Star of the week.
