Hawaii is the latest state talking about a shortage of high school football referees.  According to KHON-TV, the referee shortage could result in the Oahu Interscholastic Association moving some games to Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Over the last few years, numerous states, including Texas, have put-out requests looking for new officials.  The OIA is currently working on the 2017 schedule, which should be released in a couple of weeks.
