Joe "Meatball" Manfre



Joe Manfre was one of the most sought-after referees in the country. He refereed the women’s US National team multiple times, 10 Collegiate National Championships, countless college games and, of course, the Baltimore Blast. It all started growing up in Baltimore, where Joe was one of the fiercest goalkeepers competing at Patterson High School and University of Baltimore. With 47 years of refereeing at all levels, Joe shares a perspective on the game unlike any I have ever heard before.
