Abe Glick was one of the founding fathers of the Athletic Officials Association of America, as it was originally known, serving as football vice-president in 1926 and secretary-treasurer of the basketball division for 47 consecutive years from 1936-1982, retiring from that position at the age of 93. He started officiating in 1920 and was a 65-year member of the AOA. Glick officiated the 1937 Chicago City Championship game between Austin and Leo High Schools, which was played in Soldier Field before an estimated crowd of 120,000 spectators. Glick passed away in 1986. The AOA gives an annual award in his name for outstanding contributions to officiating.
