3 Stars 2017 Week 32

  1. Randy Vogt Soccer Referee
  2. Esther Staubli Football Referee
  3. 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.

3rd Star

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.

You can listen to the podcast right here. Rose LeBreche comes on at the 10:00 minute mark. Enjoy! 

2nd Star

Esther Staubli is a top FIFA Football Referee and has been in the middle for a number of top women’s matches around the world. This week she can add Women’s Euro 2017 Final to her list of career highlights. Netherlands beat Denmark in the final match by a score of 4-2 and Staubli and her team put in a solid performance. Esther Staubli, Football Referee, is 2nd Star this week.

1st Star

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.
