Fellow author Fr. Roland Faley called Preventive Officiating author Randy Vogt "the indefatigable soccer referee" as Randy has officiated over 8,000 games during the past three decades, from pro matches in front of thousands to six-year-olds being cheered on by very
enthusiastic parents. Randy has received 10 officiating awards in three different countries (USA, USSR, Italy), has been invited to referee tournaments around the world and officiated in a couple of the globe’s great stadiums. He writes a syndicated column on refereeing for Soccer America and Southern Soccer Scene. During the 1990s on the MSG Network, he gave the "Cool Rules Quiz" on the TV show, "Soccer Zone."
In Preventive Officiating, the Long Island Junior Soccer League Hall of Famer shares his wisdom gleaned from thousands of games and hundreds of clinics.
The author would like to thank the many people who have helped him along the road of life, especially those from the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association, Long Island Junior Soccer League, Long Island Futsal League and New York Metro Intercollegiate Soccer Officials Association.
