|This is a photo of Calvin Townes. You'll have to stay to|
the end of this post to see "The" great photo, the one
that inspired blog posts about the officials.
|Calvin visiting with injured Outlaw|
Jennifer Beaumont. He genuinely
cares about the Outlaw players.
He knows the players. I asked Calvin about a pre-game photo of him with one of the Outlaws. He said “That’s Amber Lyons. She’s number 32. Amber is a great player.”
|Marcus Gravenburg and Calvin.|
They travel to Waco to
officiate the annual scrimmage
with a couple Dallas teams.
|Calvin officiating at the Waco scrimmage. Note #32, |
Amber Lyons, leading in making the tackle. Calvin
says "She's a great player."
|Marcus Gravenburg, Calvin's crewmate officiating at|
a Waco scrimmage.
|Calvin is/was the umpire lining up behind the defensive line and linebackers. In my mind this is|
the toughest job for the officials because the action is going to come his way and he has to know
how to avoid getting involved but still make the call.
