Joe Knoff (left), a Midland native now living in the Detroit area, was recently selected to referee in the Finals of the 2018 Youth Nationals Championships, held in Frisco, Texas. 

Joe began his referee career at the Midland Soccer Club, and advanced through the ranks to participate at the Michigan State Cup Championships, the Region II Championships, and this year was selected to participate in Nationals.  

There are over 6,000 certified referees in Michigan, and only 12 are selected annually for Regionals, and 4-6 for Nationals.
