- Randy Vogt Soccer Referee
- Esther Staubli Football Referee
- 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.
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.

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.
Honoring #Soccer #Referee Randy Vogt on behalf of #NassauNY for officiating his 10,000th match & many years of service! Thanks Donnie Braga! pic.twitter.com/LmVRT6sgUh
