Guest of honour at BAFRA's annual convention in its 25th year will be Greg Gautreaux, who was one of the officials for the recent Super Bowl won by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Indeed, it was Gautreaux, the field judge for the game, who ruled Santonio Holmes' catch complete to give Pittsburgh their winning lead.

David Parsons, BAFRA Director of Training, said, "Greg will give several presentations at the Convention covering various aspects of officiating mechanics and philosophies. His experience will be invaluable to our members in improving their skills and knowledge of the game."

Jim Briggs, BAFRA President, added, "It's quite a coup for us to get such an outstanding official to speak at our event, and especially at such an auspicious time for BAFRA."

Greg has been a sports official for thirty-four years. He has officiated football, basketball and baseball in high school and college for a number of years. For the last seven years, he has been a field judge in the NFL. He is a firm believer that training is a very important aspect in the growth and development of an officiating association and is looking forward to making his contribution to BAFRA.

The Convention will be held in Coventry over the weekend of 4th-5th April. Although attendance is restricted to BAFRA members, there is just still time for new members to join the Association. See for details.

BAFRA was founded in 1984 and therefore celebrates its silver jubilee this year. It is the longest standing organisation in British American football.
