Virginia Tech intramural sports graduate assistant Jeff Feldhaus, who is working towards a master’s degree in forestry, was chosen for the second consecutive year to officiate the American Collegiate Intramural Sports National Flag Football Tournament last winter. More than 60 teams from across the country participated in the tournament, where Feldhaus was among the 12 officials chosen as All-Americans. “Being chosen as one of the best intramural officials in the country is an honor,” said Feldhaus.

Feldhaus hires and trains officials for all intramural sports at Virginia Tech and schedules teams, supervisors, and officials for regular season and playoff games. “Jeff has been a great asset to our staff,” said Ben Smith, intramural sports coordinator. “We are proud that our intramural sports officials here at Virginia Tech are being trained by one of the best officials in the country.”

This summer, Feldhaus traveled to Europe with three fellow members of the national Intramural-Recreational Sports Association to instruct and train military personnel to officiate flag football games. The team gave week-long clinics at military bases in Germany and Italy. “The chance to work with the U.S. Army in Europe was very unique because, over the past 30 years, very few people have had the opportunity to be a part of these clinics,” Feldhaus added. “It was a privilege to give back to the men and women who give so much for our country.”
