Al Bartolini, President, presided at the fourth ANEFO meeting of the 2022 Football Season on Monday, September 12, 2022 at the Irish-American Club in Malden. Al greeted the members and discussed various updates about the upcoming football season. Al also reminded each member about their requirement to register with the MIAA, to take the annual online concussion test and the annual online ANEFO mandatory preseason exam. 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 a 12th defensive player coming onto the field just after the snap. Tom also asked members in groups to list all the “Blow and Throw Fouls” that they could think off. Finally, Tom reviewed mandatory football equipment, equipment players can have, and prohibited equipment.

The next meeting will be on Monday, September 19, 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. We wish everyone a successful weekend of football officiating; don’t forget to make sure there are two certified medical personnel, one for each team, at all Massachusetts varsity NFHS football games.
