Former USA Today writer Dave Krider weighs in on the Temple City-Arcadia tie from last weekend. Krider, a senior writer at MaxPreps, caught up with Joe Conte, the San Gabriel Valley Football Officials Association liaison to the CIF-Southern Section, who met with the crew Tuesday night. Yours truly makes a cameo in the story as well.
“I was almost in tears facing those guys,” Conte said. “I’m not going to sugarcoat it – our officials should have done a better job asking about overtime. They probably won’t sleep tonight. I can’t tell you how bad they feel. This has affected 85 of us.”
