RRSA is thrilled to recognize one of the many superb young referees that our association is fortunate to have for being nominated for the Louisiana Young Referee of the Year Award. Fewer than 24 referees who exhibit an interest in learning and developing as a referee, who show professionalism both on and off the field, and are plugged in and involved within their school or community are honored with this nomination each year.

So please help us in congratulating Ian Ricketts for this awesome achievement! Ian, a senior at Buckeye High School, has been a part of our RRSA referee crew since our association’s very first game. As a young referee, Ian has been a crucial asset to referees and players alike. When Ian is not on the pitch calling matches, he has managed to maintain a 4.0 GPA throughout high school as well as being a member of the National Honors Society. Ian has also received all-academic honors as both a football and soccer player. While on the pitch as a player, Ian is a two time first team all district goalkeeper and district defensive MVP. Ian, RRSA is thankful to have you on our team and we cannot wait to see where life takes you as you get ready to graduate high school!
