Kudos go out to Marlon Parohinog (JESS) for giving up his role as the East All Stars head coach to officiate the All-Star Game. That’s a lead to follow for others, as I see it because you are doing what is necessary to insure the youth can partake in a game they surely look forward to. Also, kudos go out to all the participants in this year’s league, and the IAA officials and the CAHS staff. And thanks go to the CAHS Physical Education Department for housing the Championship and All Star games.
