- Name: Derek Summers
- Hometown: Tulsa, OK
- How did you get involved in officiating? By accident, I stopped playing after my 2nd serious shoulder injury and one Saturday I was asked (more like told) to referee my old club NSU when the ref didn’t show. I was in khaki shorts and a t shirt, and used a self defense whistle that someone's girlfriend had, which ironically wasn’t very loud.
- Favorite location or tournament to referee in: Its hard to beat Aspen Ruggerfest, the mountains, the teams, the rugby. If you have never been, you are missing out!
- Favorite referee: Steve Walsh, I really like how he has had his highs and lows but has made it back to the top.
