LAS VEGAS – Friday night lights are back … kind of.
Many secondary school sporting events around the nation have been dropped on account of COVID-19 cases. Yet, that is not by any means the only thing putting players uninvolved.
Las Vegas schools have been dropping games week after week on account of COVID-19, however for the games that actually go on, they’re working with less authorities on the field.
Before the pandemic, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association had around 1,400 authorities for all games in the state.
Presently the number is somewhere near half.
A commonplace secondary school football season in Las Vegas needs around 300 refs, yet the Southern Nevada Officials Association (SNOA) says it’s down to 177.
“We’ve encountered deficiencies, however the thing we’re encountering this year we haven’t managed,” said Vince Kristosik, the leader of the SNOA.
