Several members have decided to hang up their boots, whistles and flags in 2008. Two notable members who are ending their college soccer officiating career are Mike Dieguez and Arnold Klein.
Mike Dieguez has been a chapter member for almost 25 years. A sports memorabilia collector, Mike was born and raised in Astoria, NY. He attended LIU on a baseball scholarship and was most recently the athletic director for the Oceanside school district.
Arnold Klein was the 2007 NISOA Region 2 Referee of the Year. You can read a more detailed biography of Arnold here.
We wish Mike and Arnold all the best in their future endeavours.
