A time of gratitude for our sports staff

Working at Kitsap Sun for the past 15 years, it’s not often that I say to myself, “This is the first time I’ve seen something like this,” when describing an event I’m covering.

These are almost the words I used when attending Saturday’s “official gratitude” barbecue at Bremen High School. Knights football coach Paul Terio and athletics coach Daniel McInnis took turns baking burgers, hot dogs and chicken for about 30 referees from various sports who appeared.

Theriault smiled when someone joked that “Coach T” was trying to see fewer penalty flags in next season’s matches. In fact, Theriault simply wanted to thank the men and women who make West Sound high school / youth sports work properly. Without officials, the games do not take place.
