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.

3 Stars 2017 Week 32


  1. Randy Vogt Soccer Referee
  2. Esther Staubli Football Referee
  3. Rose LeBreche Rugby Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 32 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


Rose LeBreche is one of the top international Rugby Referees in the world. This week she took some time at the World Cup Qualifiers in Dublin, Ireland to speak with RugbyReferee.net. LeBreche talks about her Olympic experience in Rio, her fulltime career away from rugby and her life on one the most elite teams of sports officials in any sport. RugbyReferee.net is pretty much the ‘go to’ site for rugby referee information. They are thorough, current, and very knowledgeable, and this is a very interesting podcast. Rose LeBreche, Rugby Referee, is 3rd Star for the week.



You can listen to the podcast right here. Rose LeBreche comes on at the 10:00 minute mark. Enjoy! 



2nd Star


Esther Staubli is a top FIFA Football Referee and has been in the middle for a number of top women’s matches around the world. This week she can add Women’s Euro 2017 Final to her list of career highlights. Netherlands beat Denmark in the final match by a score of 4-2 and Staubli and her team put in a solid performance. Esther Staubli, Football Referee, is 2nd Star this week.




1st Star


Randy Vogt is a Soccer Referee from Eastern New York. He has been the referee in more than 10,000 matches at every level, from the pros to the 6 year olds. To put this into perspective, a professional soccer referee will often run 10 miles or more in a match, and an amateur referee can do 5 miles in a big game. Even if Vogt only ran 3 miles in each of his 10,000 games, that means he ran 30,000 miles as a Soccer Referee. That is a lot of miles, and in my books, running 30,000 miles, for any reason, is worth a 1st Star selection. Randy Vogt, Soccer Referee, is the 1st Star for Week 32.

3 Stars 2017 Week 28


  1. Jan ter Harmsel Football Referee
  2. Randy Vogt Soccer Referee
  3. Hillary Lissenden Boxing Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 28 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


Hillary Lissenden is a Boxing Referee in England. She is also the Director of England Boxing, which is the National Governing Body for the sport in the country, and the CEO of London Community Boxing. Lissenden took a few moments to be interviewed by Rachel Bower of the Women’s Coaching Network and talk about her role as the senior female referee in the country. For leading the way into the future, Hillary Lissenden is 3rd Star this week.



2nd Star


Randy Vogt has been a Soccer Referee for 40 years. He was still in college when he reached his 1000th game. It has been a little while since those days and Vogt is quickly approaching match 10,000. That is an amazing feat in any sport, but it is even more amazing when it is all logged out and recorded for history. As the special game approaches, Vogt has decided to use the opportunity to try and raise some money for inner city kids. For the incredible persistence of a kind heart, Randy Vogt is 2nd Star.



1st Star


Jan ter Harmsel is well known to the followers of the Officials101 twitter feed. I have posted and reposted many of Jan’s excellent articles of advice and guidance that are not only helpful to the Football Referee, but helpful to officials in all sports. The Dutch Referee was quietly giving advice and inspiration in the background during the early days of 101 as I tried to learn the ropes of social media and figure out what to do with the unexpected attention received by the Officials101 page. Jan’s passion and natural teaching ability has been noticed by KNVB, also known as the Royal Dutch Football Association, which is the governing body for all level of soccer in the Netherlands, and they have hired him to be one of their instructors for their training programs. It is always fun to watch as 101 followers progress and advance in different ways, and I offer my congratulations to Jan for his successes of today and the future. Jan ter Harmsel is 1st Star for Week 28.

3 Stars 2017 Week 22

 


  1. Anthony Taylor Football Referee
  2. Ball Delivery Drone Pilot
  3. Perry Barber Baseball Umpire

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 22 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


3rd Star was a tough one this week. There were a lot of candidates to choose from. Did you see all those licence plates? Those are almost impossible for me to pass on, but it had to be done. Ultimately, it came down to this – if you get a doll modelled after you, that is something a little more unusual and less likely to be repeated. Even if it isn’t a bobblehead.  Perry Barber, Baseball Umpire, gets 3rd Star.



2nd Star


This post was fun. The ball delivery at the 2017 Portuguese Cup was pretty unique as this guy flies in on a drone and hands the game ball to the referee. I think it is possible that this could be a sign of the future for referees in the growing game of Quidditch. For this week though, the Ball Delivery Drone Pilot is 2nd Star.



1st Star


One of the toughest matches on the planet to referee is the FA Cup Final. Of course that also makes it one of the most exciting career markers in the game as well. In 2017, Taylor got the call to run this high pressure affair as Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1. Anthony Taylor is the 1st Star for Week 22.
