What does it take to become a high school football official? Do you need to have played football to become an official? Can I become a high school football official regardless of my gender? Is it difficult to become a high school football official?

All valid questions and all answered when I spoke with 30-year high school football official Keith Junot of the Lafayette Area Football Officials Association.

The first meeting will be on Monday, July 8th at 6 p.m. at the Girard Park Recreation Center you're more than welcome to show up at the first meeting or call Greg Gautreaux at 337-278-5441.
