Roger Berney brought his whistle to high school sporting events for more than 30 years, officiating football, volleyball and wrestling. He got his start in wrestling, the sport he competed in at Midland College, working more than 20 state tournaments as well as the 1980 NAIA National Championship. The Wolbach graduate also officiated volleyball for more than 25 years and high school and junior high football for more than 15 years, wrapping up his career when his son became a high school football player. Considered consistent, reliable and fair, Berney was named the Nebraska Scholastic Wrestling Coaches Association Official of the Year in 2001, the year in which he retired after working  in his fifth decade.
