There's nothing like Friday night football in Lafayette! And you get the opportunity to be a part of it!

The Lafayette Area Football Officials Association is in need of more people to call high school football games for the upcoming season. Local and Conference USA referee Daniel Gautreaux says it gives former athletes and fans of the game a different perspective on the game and makes for a nice way to make a little extra money on the side.

"Guys that tend to try it and try to join, I think sometimes they're hooked because it's a way to stay involved in the game."

Referees meet every Monday night at 6:00 p.m. at Girard Park. You have until Monday, August 4th to register.

If you're interested and have some questions about the commitment or things needed, call Greg Gautreaux at (337) 291-8371.
