Lamb, Hays brothers, Halstead to ref final game

The long-time officiating crew of Norman Lamb, Guy Hays, Worry Hays, Bill Halstead and Gene Akers will be working their last game together tonight when they do the Yale at Oklahoma Bible Academy football game.

Lamb and the Hays brothers have officiated for some 50 years. Halstead is doing his final game as well.

"I'll tell you 50 years ought to be enough,'' said Worry Hays. "We're going to miss it, but you don't have to tell a guy when he ought to quit. When you're 25 to 30 years old, you can keep up with those guys ... when you get a little older, it gets a little more difficult."'

OBA is planning a ceremony to honor the crew.

Worry Hays said he and his brother, Guy, have officiated in 220 different towns in Oklahoma.
