3 Stars 2017 Week 19


  1. Alberto Riveron NFL SVP of Officials
  2. Jawahir Jewels Football Referee
  3. Cricket Umpires and the Legend of the Nelson

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 19 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

Those who have been following Officials101 know that I love the history stuff. This post has a great story about cricket umpires who do a little superstitious ritual at a score of 111. The Legend of the Nelson is a fascinating tale of Cricket Umpires and Horatio Nelson that it is well worth the read and it gets 3rd Star for this week.

2nd Star

Jawahir Jewels is a football referee in England. This is an inspiring article about a young lady who has accepted every challenge and faced down every obstacle with determination and a wonderful positive spirit. There are some people that make an extraordinary difference in the world just by being themselves, and JJ is one of those. 2nd Star for Week 19 is Jawahir Jewels.

1st Star

The NFL announced that Al Riveron has been hired as Senior VP of Officiating to replace the vacating Dean Blandino. Admitting to the frantic pace required of the job during the Blandino era, the NFL basically split his old job into 3 and those appointments are also addressed in this announcement. Alberto Riveron will be the boss though, and he gets 1st Star for Week 19.
