  1. I had the honor of working with Ray Wolfe most of my career and he Would always call me to go over USF three-man procedures protocols of the several professional leauges that we work in ( the 3rd version of the American Soccer Leauge APSL ( American professional soccer Leauge and the USISL and the A Leauge ( now USL PRO and PDL) Myself Ken Heller Nino Cattnotti and Jack Dauquila were the ” Go to people ” when a Adult USSF game had to be covered . He allways gave a simple pre game and allways told is linesman ( now ARs) to be cool and it help and if you did something wrong , he would tell you but in a constructive manner . I was a 4th official and Ray was the senior linesman for the 1st ever 3rd venison American Soccer Leauge game between the New Jersey Eagles vs the Washington diplomats ( the same diplomats like the Tampa Bay Roughriders survive the downfall of the original in NASL ) back in the mid 90s myself Ray and Ken would work LIKSL games in the morning and then officiate a USISL game between the Long Island Roughriders vs the NY Fever or a USL W Leauge game between the Long Island Lady Riders Vs the NY Magic . Ray was a class act and Ray will be missed by everybody in the Soccer community
