Bob Prestera, Secretary-Treasurer, presided at the sixth ANEFO meeting of the 2022 Football Season on Monday, September 26, 2022 at the Irish-American Club in Malden. Bob greeted the members and discussed various updates about the upcoming football season. Bob requested that all members be very careful with checking the Arbiter, especially when game times are changed. Please accept all game changes as soon as possible. Bob also reported about an assault incident that occurred over the weekend between a youth football coach and an official. Bob thanked the official for reporting the incident to the police; this type of violence cannot be tolerated. Bob also informed the membership if you are not registered with the MIAA by October 1, 2022; you will not receive any playoff games.
Tom Brow, Rules Interpreter, was the guest speaker. Tom presented a visual presentation that included an interesting “You make the Call” for misdirection play involving a back and a center gleaned from two Hudl football clips. Next, Tom presented two reminders involving the removal of excessive eye shade prior to the start of each contest and the 42-30 MIAA mercy rule. Later, Tom presented and discussed a targeting video courtesy of the AAHSO and three Hudl football play clips from recent local games. Finally, Tom asked the audience to conduct two “turn and talks” regarding penalties on scrimmage kicks that ended in touchdowns. Once you start his video presentation, there will appear a [-] symbol in the bottom right corner. It is important that you select the [-] symbol to see the video in full screen.

At the end of the meeting, there was an opportunity for ANEFO members to ask some excellent questions. During his closing remarks, Bob wished everyone good luck during the upcoming season.
The next meeting will be on Monday, October 3, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the Irish-American Club, and the online ANEFO mandatory pre-season exam and your pre-season registration with the MIAA are now past due. I wish everyone another successful weekend of football officiating.
