These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 14 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.
Kids! The center of the universe to so many of us. Wrestling Referee John Myers’ kids had a contest at school to make some Easter Eggs for the upcoming holiday, and they used their love and imagination to create a real winner. When your kids can play with their food and create a masterpiece that looks just like you, you get a spot on the 3 Stars. John Myers, his kids and all the love it takes to create a post like this, get 3rd Star for Week 14.
My kids are DEFINITELY winning the #Easter Egg Competition tomorrow at School

World Rugby is in Hong Kong this week hosting the HK7’s and posted this photo of young Rugby Referee, Brayden Hudson. I think it is fantastic when the big leagues work together with minor sports and encourage our future superstars to shine. Maybe it is just me, but I am pretty impressed with the stature and presence that this photo has with a referee so young. For leading the way into the future, Brayden Hudson is 2nd Star.

Bill Friday is a former professional Hockey Referee who had a great career in both the NHL and WHL. In fact, Friday is the only referee who has ever worked a Stanley Cup game and an Avco Cup game. This week, Bill’s hometown of Hamilton Ontario honoured him by naming a local rink after him. When you get a rink named after you, you get a slot on the stars list so, Bill Friday Hockey Referee is the #1 Star in Week 14.
What an honour to be there with the legendary referee himself as the Bill Friday arena is officially re-named! #hometownhockey #hamilton pic.twitter.com/zQGtyCOYq5
