In the Mahoning Valley, there are a some good refs who do a fantastic Job. Paul Fennema is one of them from Salem.

Then there is Barry (no last name on purpose) but schools know who he is that has no business refering games anymore, player safety.

Joe is a Hypocrite as he doesn't shake hands when he loses and he breaks the OHSAA rules in the off season as well. He coaches his HS players through his TC Rockers Club when that is illegal by OHSAA rules and regulations. Joe is no one to preach sportsmanship when he himself has been fired before from his Lakeview soccer job for failing to follow the OHSAA rules. This is hypocrisy in full view......

This is a great idea, program, and tournament. The quality of refereeing in Trumbull county is mediocre at best. With any luck, programs like this will help make it better for the kids playing a great sport. I do find it s bit ironic though that Joe is having his kids shake hands with the refs when he refused to shake the hand of the opposing coach after losing a game.
