NFL Referee to keynote SAAC Banquet

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday.

Bethany College’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will host current National Football League (NFL) referee Gene Steratore as its special guest speaker at the annual SAAC banquet to be held on Sunday, April 27, at 5 p.m. in the Ogden Dining Room of Benedum Commons. A native of Washington, PA, Mr. Steratore is respected as an outspoken advocate of integrity issues in college and professional sports.

In addition to an 11-year career as an NFL official, he has served as supervisor of football officials for the Presidents’ Athletic Conference and as an NCAA Division I basketball official. This past season, he officiated the NFC Championship game. He also owns a family business in Washington, PA.

An annual tradition, the SAAC banquet recognizes accomplishments by the College’s 22 intercollegiate sports. If you wish to attend, please contact Brian Rose, Director of Athletics and Recreation, for ticket information.
