Chad Wilson Memorial Scholarship Fund

Two extremely generous OCFOA members have contributed enough money for us to start the Chad Wilson Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund will award scholarships to officials in order that they can attend football officiating camps. OCFOA has established a Go Fund Me page  to raise additional funds in the hopes of keeping this scholarship in place for years to come. Please take a minute and post the Go Fund Me page to you Facebook, Twitter, and What’s Ap pages and post the link to the GoFundMe page. The more people post, the wider the word will spread.  If you’d like to make a contribution, use the same link.

OCFOA Alums working NFL Championship and Super Bowl

I hope all of you got a chance to watch Chris Coyte and Jim Wharrie work the NCAA Championship Game. I thought the officiating in the game was outstanding and Chris did a great job in the pregame, reporting fouls and replay explanations.
OCFOA’s very own Andrew Lambert will be working Replay on this Sunday’s game when the San Francisco 49’ers host the Green Bay Packers. Andrew worked two weeks ago when the New England Patriots played the Tennessee Titans. Congratulations to Andrew on earning two post-season game assignments.
OCFOA alumnus Bill Vinovich will be the Referee for Super Bowl LIV. This is Bill’s 2nd Super Bowl, he was also the Referee for the 2015 Super Bowl.
