Starting the season at 4-0 with three overtime wins in a row was a bit of fools gold.

When more than 2,000 high school athletic directors were asked in a recent national survey what they like least about their job, 62.3% said it was “dealing with aggressive parents and adult fans.”

And the men and women who wear the black and white stripes agree. In fact, almost 80% of officials quit after the first two years on the job, and unruly parents are cited as the reason why. As a result, there is a growing shortage of high school officials here in Ohio, and in some sports like wrestling, swimming, and track and field, the shortage is severe. No officials means no more games.
