If football players, coaches and fans think they see officials throwing blue flags Friday, there is no need to check for color blindness.
For the fourth consecutive year, Washington high school football officials will raise the profile of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month by replacing traditional yellow penalty flags with blue flags during varsity games played from Thursday to Saturday.
The campaign is called “Coaches Against Cancer” and is sponsored by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
“In most situations, officials want to avoid attention during games, but for three days we are hoping to attract a little attention with every penalty that is called,” Washington Officials Association Commissioner Todd Stordahl said. “By switching to blue flags, it will at least make the fans notice that something is different. This is a great way for the officials to participate in an activity that will help bring awareness to something that has had an impact on many lives including some of those who are out on the field as officials.”
