Appreciation time for our sports officials

Read Time:3 Minute, 28 Second


Working at the Kitsap Sun for the past 15 years, it’s not too often that I find myself saying “this is the first time I’ve seen anything like this” when describing an event that I cover.

Those are pretty much the words I used when attending Saturday’s “officials appreciation” barbecue at Bremerton High School. Knights football coach Paul Theriault and track and field coach Daniel McInnis took turns grilling hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken for the roughly 30 referees from various sports who showed up. 

Theriault cracked a smile when someone joked that “Coach T” was angling to see fewer penalty flags at games next season. In reality, Theriault simply wanted to thank the men and women who make high school/youth sports in West Sound function properly. Without officials, games don’t happen.
