Long Time Basketball Ref Retires
The high school basketball postseason is in full swing, and while the focus is on the athletes, another group of people is also ending their season. High School referees travel all over the state, often doing several games a week.
On any given call, a portion of the fans at the game will voice their displeasure.
One official that has called his final game has always done his job with a smile.
Long-time official David Brown was always best known as almost always having a smile.
Earlier this week at the Chillicothe Lady Hornets at Benton Game, he told KCHI’s Randy Dean that his career was ending.
Lady Hornets Coach Darren Smith commented about Brown’s lengthy career.
Brown told KCHI before the game that he has just one more Junior College game to ref, then his career would be over.
