"Eric has experience, passion, talent, and possesses a commitment to excellence that will produce good things for the referee community", stated Dave Guthrie, Indiana Soccer’s Executive Director.
Guthrie further commented that Hench will assume his responsibilities immediately and that he is excited about a number of things Eric and Tony Crush (Indiana’s interim SRA) are planning that will benefit the Indiana referee family.
