The next issue we chose to address immediately was recruiting. This is a challenge for each BODs every year. Bill Townsend headed up the Recruiting Committee this year. As always, with help from (you) KFOA members providing names of prospective officials, Bill used a few new tactics. Including using an Officials Informational 30 second video spot on Time Warner Cable. Thanks to the generous offer from Chris Bowling, our spot was shown on, ESPN, ESPN2, Fox Sports, Big Ten Network, and the NFL Network too, for the whole month of June at all times of the day. I know many of you called and said you saw the KFOA promo on some of these channels. It is also posted on our website (www.kfoa.info) if you did not get to see it. As to date Bill has recruited 18 rookie officials, 11 of which have already registered with the KHSAA. He has also reached out to officials who have been inactive for 2 or more years and has gotten 6-7 of them to return. This is a great start and we still hope to have more show up next Wednesday!
