The old adage says, “Time flies when you're having fun.” For Poteau football referee Max Rowley, nothing could be more true.
Last weekend at the Oklahoma Officials Conference in Oklahoma City, Rowley was given a certificate for his 40 years of being on the field every Friday night.
“I guess the first thing I thought of was that it's hard to believe that I've been calling games for that period of time,” Rowley said. “It's just gone by so rapidly.”
