hi guys, i have covered newspaper stories for the asbury park press and star ledger, have substitute taught and coached at various public schools around ocean county and i've been refereeing/umpiring for 34 years. here is a school story from 1981. we played matawan in football at the home of the indian (tr south). led by senior captain and MVP joe bubba mcharris we won that game and 5 more games and finished the season 6-3. wait a minute, joe bubba was captain and mvp of 2 sports. yeah. OMG. tr south remains my favorite high school to referee and umpire baseball and softball games. you can't make this stuff up, amazing...

School Story:

you see we were participating in model un in those days, you know, mock United Nations General Assembly right in the trs gymnasium. i played the part of an African leader giving a speech to the un general assembly when mock armed gunmen burst into the preceedings and take me away in front of everyone. then there was the time when we were in the last week of wrestling season. we were to wrestle tr east, jackson, and tr north in a 7 day span. there was this huge mondo snow storm (blizzard of 1982). it canceled the saturday match which meant we had to wrestle all three schools beginning that monday, wednesday and saturday all in the same week. as senior captain and MVP of the wrestling team i helped lead trs to victory of all 3 schools in that span. we won the A-South division that year. the tr east match was the best of the 3 matches that week. in front of a standing room only crowd at tr east, tr south trailed going into the final match. joe bubba defeated (pinned) his man to propel tr south to victory over tr east. All three matches took place on the road away from trs in hostile environments. Woh!
