3 Stars 2017 Week 26


  1. John Tumpane MLB Baseball Umpire
  2. Adrian Carson Football Referee
  3. Dale Orem NFL Football Referee

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 26 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

Dale Orem was an NFL Football Referee who made an appearance in Super Bowl XXX as a line judge. Now he is a successful businessman and politician who gives back to his local sports community. He took some time to sit down with MoxieTalk and share his wisdom and experiences. For being a great example of sports officials who are leaders in their hometown, Dale Orem, Football Referee, is awarded the 3rd Star for the week.

2nd Star

Adrian Carson is also a football referee. He is a high school referee for a 7 on 7 touch football tournament. You can watch him here giving an inspiring speech before the start of his game about sportsmanship and competing. Great leadership and coaching skills are common traits shared by officials across all sports and it is great to see how it can impact young minds. Adrian Carson is 2nd Star.

1st Star

John Tumpane is a MLB Baseball Umpire who is being hailed as a hero for saving the life of a woman in Pittsburgh before his game the other night. This is an amazing story that completely took over the 101 umpire search feeds this week. It was almost impossible to find umpire postings from any other sport and it is easy to see why. Tumpane even received a standing ovation for his heroics which is rather unusual in the world of sports officiating. As predicted by Rich McLean, John Tumpane is definitely the 1st Star this week.
