Michael is a Referee in the Big XII, with 10 Years of Division I college football experience. He will be beginning his 20th season of football this fall. Micheal currently resides in Mandeville, Louisiana and is the Director of Academic Programs for a local K-12 school where he gets to lead teachers, develop and oversee academic programs, and coach varsity baseball on the side. He is married to Carlie and they have two children, Hayden age 11, and Sophia age 9. One of Michael fondest memories from his childhood was being a “ballboy” for his Dad’s football crew. He would run the ball out to the middle of the field and place it for the Umpire before his Dad, the Referee, blew the ball ready-for-play.Of course, I thought I was helping him manage the game.
