OHIO HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HONORS
HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES &
OFFICIALS OF THE YEAR
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR SOUTHWEST DISTRICT RECIPIENTS
 

Mr. Lee Barlow Mr. John Crispino Mr. Lee Day Mr. Tom Schoborg


Annually the Ohio High School Athletic Association hosts a Hall of Fame Banquet to induct selected individuals into its membership. The banquet was held on Saturday, June 10, 2017. Thirteen individuals were inducted with two hailing from the Southwest. The members of the Southwest District Athletic Board choose to highlight some of Mr. Barlow’s and Mr. Crispino’s contributions to high school athletics:

Mr. Lee Barlow
Mr. Barlow has officiated for the past forty-three years. His sports of choice were: baseball, basketball, and football. Lee officiated in twenty-eight State Championships and has worked fifty-six regional contests. He shares that one of his biggest satisfactions is to recruit young individuals to officiate and watch them mature as officials. Lee is married to wife Terri, and they have four children. 

Mr. John Crispino
Mr. Crispino started his officiating career in 1963 while serving in the United States Air Force. In 1964 he moved to Westover AFB in Massachusetts and there he officiated his first varsity game. From there his military career took him to Texas, and he worked a full varsity schedule. In 1967 he relocated to Columbus, Ohio, and there his career took on many new facets.  He became a practice game official for the Ohio State Buckeyes under Coaches Hayes, Bruce, and Cooper. In 2002 he retired from active officiating and started to observe Division III college football and high school crews. He had the good fortune to officiate in the Division II NAIA football playoffs and the OHSAA football playoffs. He proudly represents fifty years of dedicated service to athletes.

Also, at this banquet there were individuals chosen as Officials of the Year in their sport. Again, the Southwest had two individuals recognized for demonstrating leadership that was highly respected by their peers:

Mr. Lee Day - Boy’s Basketball
Mr. Day completed his thirty-seventh year of officiating this year and called it quits. Lee shared that one of his highlights on the way home throughout the years was his stop at the Dairy Queen. In 1991-92, he began his collegiate officiating career carried on simultaneously with high school officiating, but in 2005-2007, he decided to devote all his attention to high school games. During his high school career, he worked in eight State Basketball Championships (either semi-finals or finals). He shared that one of his true highlights was working the State finals in 2009 with two of his best friends and highly respected peers from the Middletown Association. Lee has served in leadership positions for his officiating association. In 2006 he was inducted into the Middletown Basketball Officiating Association Hall of Fame. In retirement, he hopes to give back to young aspiring officials.

Mr. Tom Schoborg - Swimming and Diving
Mr. Schoborg has been a registered Swimming and Diving Official for twenty-two years. Tom has worked the Southwest District Swim Meet for twenty-one years and worked the deck at the State Championships for eight years. He has had the privilege to work as a starter and referee in meets at the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University. One of his highlights has been working the Big12 Championships.

Congratulations to our Southwest District Honorees!  We are proud of you and your accomplishments!
