    Mr Wilbur won’t remember me but is an exceptionally nice man and a true sage and philosopher.

    He will serve the NCAA and the Association Football Referees very well indeed.

    What a good selection and a positive one for all concerned.

      I am sure that Mr. Wilbur will excel in his position and take the NCAA to another level.

      I believe that this was an excellent choice.

    Dr. Wilbur refereed almost all of our high school’s games in then tiny Bluffton, SC over thirty years ago. He was the best. He did so much more than many other referees. He was an ambassador of the game. To my young players new to the game he took time to explain his calls of infractions. His presence on the field was educational as much as it was as a guardian of the rules.
    I know he will do a stellar job in his new appointment.
