His most significant contributions came as a college basketball referee, however. Over a 42-year period, he made his mark as an official, working more than 1,800 contests, many of them in the important post-season. His resume included 19 NCAA Division 1 conference tournament championship tests, 23 NCAA Division 1 tournament ballgames and the NCAA Final Four. He officiated games in what was then the Pac 10, Mountain West, West Coast, Big West, Western Athletic and Big 12 conferences." Plaque is wood with an acrylic label attached to front with four screws, one in each corner. Wood has a hole in center top, as well as two grooves on back (one on the left and one on top below the hole), for mounting.
