Leonard “Spike” Bauroth first began officiating in 1954. He worked in the ACC and the Southern Conference until 1968. Then, he quit and took a 12 year break to be with his family.

In 1980, at age 50, Bauroth ran a marathon and decided to return to officiating. He said, “Anyone dumb enough to run 26 miles ought to be dumb enough to referee again.”

In 1987, Jackie Loube, the technical delegate for basketball for Special Olympics North America, took Bauroth to the Special Olympics World Games. Bauroth has officiated at every World Games since.

Bauroth has a loud voice and a strong presence on the basketball court, but his passion for Special Olympics reveals his softer side. “I get more than I give” he says of working with Special Olympics athletes.

At age 80, Bauroth knows he is lucky to be active and to be able to work with Special Olympics. He hopes to attend the Games in Athens, Greece, in 2011.
