Longtime high school sports official Don Kassube is known best for his work in basketball, but his reach extends to football, track and field, wrestling, track and teaching. Kassube began officiating basketball games in Alaska in 1970 and joined the Anchorage Basketball Officials Association, serving on the board and was president from 1977 to 1988. Over the years he was selected to be an official for 24 region and state tournaments. He has officiated more National Federation High School contests than any other certified official in the state. Kassube is one of only two Alaska officials to be nominated for the National High School Sports Hall of Fame. He also coached football for 18 years, wrestling for three and served as meet director at the state track and field championships from 1988 to 1993. He is still involved today with March Madness Alaska.
