  1. It is just one week from tonight. Come and checkout Football Officiating if you think it might be for you. We need lots of help on Thursday nights!

     

    You guys like to talk about football, but do you have what it takes to be a Football Official? There is a need for more Football Officials all across the state of Texas and East Texas is know different. Come and be a part of the Tyler Chapter of the Texas Association of Sports Officals. Training is provided.

     

    We have an Informational Meeting on Monday July 17th at TJC West Campus in room 101. The meeting will begin at 6:30 and last approximately 1 hour.

     

    For more information check us out on Facebook.

  2. I would like it...but like watching my team play on Friday nights!

    I am sure the SFA chapter would love to have you on Thursday nights. Remember football officiating is about more than Fridays. Every chapter actually calls more games outside of Friday than they do on Friday. Most officials make more money calling subvarsity games than they do calling varsity games as well.

  3. Just a reminder...Football Officiating is not only about Friday nights. I know many of you attend and support your favorite team each week on Friday. Our biggest need is Sub-Varsity coverage on Thursday nights...we also have some games on Monday and Tuesday. We have officials that only work sub-varsity games because of child playing on Friday or wanting to just be fan....but if you get into officiating and grow to love it, you won't want to be in the stands on Friday either. We have the best seats in the house.

     

    See the original post for information on our meeting July 17th. Come and check it out. You might find that you look good in vertical stripes.

  4. Money is not really the issue..... there's more than enough to do everything that needs doing. It's just hard to convince those who are in control of the money to give up a lot of it at one time. Sharing the stadium with KC doesn't make things any easier to get approved. We got the video board a year or two ago, we get new lights this year. The new baseball/softball complex should be ready soon which means (hopefully) they can make a parking lot where the current one is. After that it's new bathrooms on both sides, improved seating/handrails, pressbox (ADA compliant, of course), and an updated facade at the entrance. Cue the ole Johnny Cash song.... "I got her one piece at a time..."

    Is baseball no longer using Driller Park?

  5.  

    Football rates per UIL......

     

    Varsity Gross Gate Receipts 1 Game

    $150 to $250 $60

    $250 to $500 $65

    $500 to $1,000 $70

    $1,000 to $2,000 $75

    $2,000 to $3,000 $80

    $3,000 to $4,000 $85

    $4,000 to $5,000 $90

    $5,000 to $7,500 $95

    $7,500 to $10,000 $100

    $10,000 to $12,500 $105

    $12,500 to $15,000 $110

    $15,000 to $17,500 $125

    $17,500 to $20,500 $135

     

    Each additional $5,000 $30

     

    Sub-Varsity and Junior High (7th & 8th Grade) Each Game Per Official 12-minute quarters $55 10-minute quarters $50 8-minute quarters $45

     

    NOTE: After three hours, each additional hour is $50 for all sports except football, which is $75 each additional hour.

    The note at the end refers to scrimmages. That money goes to the chapter. Officials are not paid for scrimmages

  6. So the pay is a percentage of the gate?

    Yes. Football is the only sport where "gate" still factors. You can google uil 1204 and see the pay for all sports in Texas

     

    In East Texas, $200 would be an extremely high game fee. Matt Steps assertation that many guys get more than that is probably more true in the areas with a lot of large schools. Officials do get paid mileage. Some schools fudge on the gate as well.

     

    Not a perfect solution out there, but I wish they would raise the Varsity pay and get rid of the gate. Subvarsity pay has gone up in recent years...but I would not complain if it were higher.

     

    The officials that love the gate are the ones that only work 5A and 6A games. Plus gates can be large in the playoffs as well.

  8. Lee somehow needs to leave enough talent in the JV to get some kids some quality reps. That's been easier said than done with a varsity that's needed every key piece they could find. To me that's how to jumpstart the program and get some kids interested in having fun again and just playing football.

    I agree 100% the sub-varsity teams have not been very competitive lately. Hopefully more numbers will mean more people can play at the lower levels.

  9. I don't guess they're going by series rules?

    The days rest will still apply. It is basically 2 one game series. The days of rest will still apply, so if you throw more than 30 pitches in the semi you can't pitch in the final.

  10. Maybe the fact that they don't have a baseball field? Maybe. Carthage HS and Panola College both play at the same field, which is at a park on the loop.

    They may not have their own field, but the playing surface at the field Panola and Carthage share is just about the best natural grass baseball surface in East Texas. Have not seen it in a year or so, but Jacksonville's used to be extremely nice as well.
