More Officials Needed

The OSAA is reporting that they are still down in officiating numbers from prepandemic levels. Over the previous two season some games had to be rescheduled and some canceled due to a lack of Officials. The decrease was seen along all sports, but the OSAA says the numbers are getting better. They currently have 582 officials for the fall football season. In comparison there were 658 officials for the 2019 season.
