Jan Allen Jan Allen has been officiating soccer for 46 years, from youth leagues to the college level and adult semi-pro for both women and men. Spending the majority of her life in soccer as a player has given her unique insight as an official, providing a sense of what is best for the game being played, the importance of “getting the call right,” and ensuring players “doing no harm.” As a referee, Allen believes you have a responsibility to respect the coaches, players and, most importantly, the integrity of the game. When mentoring new officials, she works to pass along these same values that have contributed to her status as a respected official:
Master the rules of the game and apply them in a fair and impartial manner
Constantly strive to maintain a high code of ethics
She has been a member of the National Federation Soccer Rules Committee for the past five years and is a member of the HHSAA Soccer Tournament Committee. She is also a Hawaii Soccer Association Board member and a member of the board of the Women’s Island Soccer Association. She has officiated in the HHSAA State Soccer Tournament for several years and has worked the girls state championship game. Jan founded the Hawaii Scholastic Soccer Federation Referees Association and was president of this group. She is most proud of providing the leadership to unite the soccer referees into one organization to officiate both OIA and ILH games.
Samuel (Sam) Delos Reyes Sam Delos Reyes has worked in many facets of athletics, from officiating, coaching and mentoring to serving in administration as an athletic director. Delos Reyes was trained by the legendary official and HSOHOF inductee James Aiona and worked alongside many veteran officials including Louie Fuentes, Pat Tanibe, Maurice Sullivan, Hal Garner, Craig Petersen, and Ralph Sing Chow. He quickly ascended through the officiating ranks and became a state championship official in 1983. Delos Reyes was also hired to work at the NCAA level where he worked in both the Western Athletic Conference (men) and Big West Conference (women). He also refereed in the competitive local college conference (NAIA District 29), which became NCAA Division II. During this time, he was also the head football coach at Nanakuli High School and won an OIA championship in 1983. He reached the league finals on two other occasions as the head coach at Waipahu High School, where he also served as golf coach. It was immediately clear to everyone in the Hawaii high school sports world that, with this unique combination of coaching and officiating acumen, Delos Reyes commanded respect from players and coaches as he knew how to communicate effectively. As a result, he was selected to work nine state championship games during his 33 seasons as an official. In 1989, upon the recommendation of OIA Executive Director Hugh Yoshida, Delos Reyes became the commissioner of the Hawaii State Basketball Officials Association. For the next 15 years, he served as the liaison between the OIA coaches and officials along with assigning the more than 700 preseason, regular season and playoff games annually. In 2003, Delos Reyes transitioned from coaching on the field to administration when he was named athletic director at Campbell High School. As the largest high school in Hawaii, he coordinated the school’s 32 sports teams and handled the hiring of coaches and volunteers. He was also the OIA’s sport coordinator in golf and girls volleyball. On the HHSAA level, he served as golf coordinator as well as the supervisor of officials for boys basketball.
Wayne Lee Wayne Lee is involved in all levels of volleyball officiating across the state of Hawaii and beyond – high school, NCAA, club and international. He has been continuously elected by his peers since 2001 to serve as secretary for the Oahu Independent Volleyball Officials Association. Since the early 1900s Wayne has been the HHSAA Volleyball Official’s Chair, responsible for coordinating and scheduling all officials during the HHSAA Girl’s and Boy’s State Volleyball Championships. As the Aloha Region Official’s Chair, Wayne serves as the primary mentor to a cadre of 30 officials, most of whom have attained Regional status. Under his leadership there have been several officials who have attained USAV Junior-National or National Referee certification and five National Scorekeepers through his guidance and support. This same group forms the backbone of officials who work high school - both ILH and OIA, NCAA and club volleyball matches on Oahu, Maui and Kauai. At the collegiate level, Wayne has officiated for several conferences, including the Western Athletic Conference, Big West Conference, Pacific West Conference and Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. He worked with UH Associate Athletic Director, Marilyn Moniz-Kaho’ohanohano, to institute a requirement that officials working UH matches be certified as either USAV Junior-National or National Referee. This resulted in raising the skill and level of officiating at UH matches. Through the years he has been selected to work multiple NCAA post-season tournaments, both as an official and as a Rater/Observer. Wayne Lee is a student of the game and of officiating. Over the years Wayne has trained hundreds of junior players during high school and club seasons that have then moved on to college to become qualified officials, scorekeepers and ultimately, better individuals. He is highly respected by his peers, coaches, players and parents.
