3 Stars 2017 Week 22


  1. Anthony Taylor Football Referee
  2. Ball Delivery Drone Pilot
  3. Perry Barber Baseball Umpire

These are the 3 Stars selected for Week 22 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

3rd Star was a tough one this week. There were a lot of candidates to choose from. Did you see all those licence plates? Those are almost impossible for me to pass on, but it had to be done. Ultimately, it came down to this – if you get a doll modelled after you, that is something a little more unusual and less likely to be repeated. Even if it isn’t a bobblehead.  Perry Barber, Baseball Umpire, gets 3rd Star.

2nd Star

This post was fun. The ball delivery at the 2017 Portuguese Cup was pretty unique as this guy flies in on a drone and hands the game ball to the referee. I think it is possible that this could be a sign of the future for referees in the growing game of Quidditch. For this week though, the Ball Delivery Drone Pilot is 2nd Star.

1st Star

One of the toughest matches on the planet to referee is the FA Cup Final. Of course that also makes it one of the most exciting career markers in the game as well. In 2017, Taylor got the call to run this high pressure affair as Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1. Anthony Taylor is the 1st Star for Week 22.
