Ward Named Official of the Year!

Written by Administrator

Maryland District’s 3rd Lieutenant Governor, Maurice Ward, has been selected as Maryland Junior College Atlantic Conference’s (JUCO) Basketball Official of the Year for the 2014 season.  The award was presented by the Mid-Atlantic Basketball Association (MACBOA) at its Annual Basketball Official’s Clinic, which was held on October 18, 2015 at Prince George’s Community College. 

Maurice is an 18 year veteran and has officiated for Baltimore City High Schools, Baltimore Catholic League, Washington D.C. High Schools, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II and III basketball, JUCO, the Kenner Summer League at Georgetown University, and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) National Tournaments.  

Maurice mentors young officials and works at an official’s basketball camp during the summer.  He is also an evaluator of officials for the Maryland Boys High School Basketball State Tournament, as well as the Crew Chief (Lead official) for just about all of the games he is assigned.  These are a few of the reasons Maurice’s peers selected him for the award.

“Maurice is an experienced and competent official.  He is compassionate about officiating and a good game manager,” says Donnie Gray, a retired veteran NCAA Division I and Final Four basketball official and Maurice’s mentor for 15 years.  When asked what drew him to officiating, Maurice said, “I love the sport of basketball and I get the best seat in the house.”
