About the WVO
The West Virginia-Ohio Board of Approved Football Officials is based in Steubenville, OH, and is made up of officials registered with the Ohio High School Athletic Association and the West Virginia Secondary Schools Athletic Commission to officiate football in both Ohio and West Virginia. The WVO also handles below-varsity assignments for 10 Ohio Valley Athletic Conference schools in Eastern Ohio (Steubenville, Steubenville Catholic Central, Indian Creek, Edison, Toronto, Harrison Central) and the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia (Weir, Weirton Madonna, Oak Glen, Brooke).
Members meet weekly at Eastern Gateway Community College in Steubenville beginning in early August through October. Our members have worked championship games in Ohio and West Virginia, and a number of members are also long-time NCAA football officials at the Division II and III levels, where they have worked numerous playoff assignments.
