The Cal North Hall of Fame honors individuals — such as players, coaches, referees, and administrators — who made contributions to youth soccer during their time.

John Murphy joins the Hall of Fame inductees for Cal North in 2020. From 1994 to 1995, John was the District IV Commissioner — was also District IV’s Referee Administrator — and the following year in 1996, was the Cal North Board Member at Large, transitioning to Cal North Board Secretary until 2000.

In 2001, John was Cal North First Vice Chairman and during 2002, fulfilled the duties of the CFO when the position was open as well as the Cal North Chairman until 2009. For seven years from 2010, John was the Past Chairman.

While serving as Cal North Chairman of the Board, John simultaneously served a stint as the US Youth Soccer Bylaw and Policies Committee Chairman as well as serving on the US Youth Soccer Board of Directors in the capacity of Member at Large.

John was also a Grade 5 State Referee, as well as a USSF Referee Assessor and a USSF Referee Instructor.

John will be joining 56 other Hall of Fame members, following the last hall of famer Albertin Montoya who was inducted in 2015.
