- Jens Maae Football Referee
- Craig McCarty Baseball Umpire
- Stylin’ Umpires
These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 20 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.
Having fun is what sports are all about for me and almost everyone I know. In my normal day to day life, I also love looking for the unique little things that can make me smile and appreciate creative people. Put the two together, and my day is made. Occasionally, I come across a post like this that shows sports officials having fun with theme shirts and I like to share them with you in the hopes that the practice will grow. Stylin’ Umpires are the 3rd Star for this week.
Personally I don’t care who is in any of the NCAA postseason tournaments as soon as the umpires are wearing these shirts. pic.twitter.com/9AhaIROYGH

Craig McCarty is working first base on Throwback Day. For all the same reasons you just read above, together with the fact that I am also a bit of a history buff, posts like this are irresistible for me. It is like my mouse has a mind of its own as the cursor moves to click the Share button. Fortunately, I am not alone. For being a good sport, keeping the masses happy and the past alive, Craig McCarty, Baseball Umpire, is 2nd Star.
I always love a good throwback baseball uniform, but I REALLY love a good throwback umpire uniform. pic.twitter.com/w16fDKNMxe

Jens Maae, Football Referee, was selected by UEFA to be in charge of the U17 Euro Final between England and Spain being played in Croatia this week. What a huge honour for the 35 year old Maae, who is from Denmark and has been an International FIFA Referee since 2013. For Week 20 of our 2017 3 Stars selections, Jens Maae is 1st Star.
