Welcome to the 2019 Football Season

Welcome Back My Fellow Officials,

I would like to welcome everyone back for another exciting year of high school football. This is a huge honor for me to be serving as this year’s President of the San Fernando Valley Football Unit. I hope everyone is well and in good health to make it to another year.

I would like to introduce the Board of Directors for the 2019 season:

President: John Brown
Vice President: Mark Hayes
Secretary/Treasurer: Larry Obar
Instructional Chair: Steven Strimling
Assistant IC: Jim Atkinson
Assigner: Kirk West
Members At Large: Joe Twiddy, Mark Millsom, Bob Klobuchar
Past President: Kent Jacobsen

I want to let everyone know that the board is working very hard this year for its members. We are currently trying to update our website so that we may recruit new members for the unit. With that being said, we are asking members to spread the word out. “Recruit, Recruit!” I will also be sending out information and dates on symposiums for all positions and a 7-person mechanics class. We’ll also be inviting Steve Coover out to attend a meeting going over film and talking with everyone about working playoffs and State games. I will have all information for you at the summer meeting on July 9th, 2019.

John Brown
President SFV Football Unit
