When Fox 28 needed help getting fans ready for the upcoming football season, they turned to the Inland Empire Football Officials Association. IEFOA veteran, Steve Felker visited with Fox/KHQ's Matt Rogers to talk about the game of football from the officials' point of view. Steve worked in some of this season's rule changes, and quizzed Matt on some of the signals fans see on TV.
Anyone wanting to join the IEFOA can come to an association meeting at any time during the season. More information can be found on the "New Officials" page.
The next IEFOA meeting is Sunday, Aug. 26 at the Jepson Center on the Gonzaga Campus. Meetings for new officials begin at 5 p.m (this week only). Second year officials and transfers will meet at 5:30. All other officials are invited to participate in a rules discussion in the Jepson Center's main auditorium at 5:30. The General Membership meeting begins at 6:30 in the main auditorium.
